This Call for Evidence aims to learn more about the fixed broadband needs of British businesses, both now and in the future.
In February 2016, the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills announced a joint Review into Business Broadband by the Departments for Culture, Media and Sport and Business, Innovation and Skills, to explore the barriers facing businesses in accessing affordable superfast broadband. The announcement set out that the Review would look at:
- The broadband speeds that businesses need now and in the future;
- The barriers that exist for businesses to get the affordable, high speed broadband they need; and
- The issue of leased lines and the role they play in the market.
The aim of this Call for Evidence is to learn more about the fixed broadband needs of British businesses, both now and in the future. The connectivity needs of businesses will inevitably vary greatly depending on the size of business, their pattern of internet usage,
and the sector they are in, and as such, it is important that the Review and any resulting action properly reflects these differences.
