UK Internet Users Willing to Help Fund Government Broadband Improvements

Posted: 11th Apr, 2011 By: MarkJ
ispreview internet broadband isp uk pollThe results from 421 respondents (polled between Mid-March and April 2011) to our latest monthly survey have revealed how nearly 9 out of 10 (89%) believe that the current coalition government is not doing enough to improve the country's broadband internet access services.

Surprisingly 69% would also like to see more tax payers' money being put into the effort. Curiously a similar survey last year (here), which asked whether or not people would be willing to support the previous government's 50p phone line tax to help fund future broadband improvements, found that 74.3% were against it.
Is the government doing enough to improve uk broadband?
No - 89%
Yes - 6.6%
Undecided - 4.2%


Should the gov put more tax payers' money into its efforts?
Yes - 68.8%
No - 31.1%


Is the current gov better or worse for broadband than the previous one?
About the same - 61.7%
Worse - 25.1%
Better - 13%
The results clearly show that, despite having only just started to emerge from a deep recession, most do recognise the increasingly vital importance of internet access and would even be willing to sacrifice more of their hard earned cash in order to see it improved.

However, a large swathe of the population still hasn't been convinced by the government's latest efforts. This is crucial because private sector investment alone can only reach approximately 70% of the country with superfast broadband services. In the future more money may be needed to reach the remotest locations.
