UK broadband not fit for purpose, says business group

UK broadband is not fit for purpose and a major government rethink is needed, according to a business lobby group.

The Federation of Small Businesses says that the UK's broadband target is simply not ambitious enough when compared to other nations.

It is calling on the government to commit to delivering a minimum of 10Mbps (megabits per second) for all homes and businesses by 2018/19.
