In October 2008, Minister for Communications Lord Carter began work on a plan aimed at securing the UK's place at the head of the new media age.
Among 22 specific actions announced in his interim report in January was a commitment to establishing a universal broadband service for every home and business by 2012.
Writing in the Times newspaper on Tuesday, the prime minister reaffirmed his commitment to that "transformation".
"Digital Britain cannot be a two-tier Britain - with those who can take full advantage of being online and those who can't," he said.
As well as looking at opportunities, the Digital Britain report will also try to tackle threats presented by new technology.
'Universal Music chairman Lucian Grainge says failure to reduce illegal downloading could destroy established media.
Local newspapers and television stations have both suffered significant losses in revenue thanks to the internet, but Mr Brown insisted their journalism must be protected.
"We cannot allow a monopoly to take root," he wrote.
"We also need to help Channel 4 to secure its future... it now requires long-term stability to develop as a truly global player."
The BBC's media correspondent Torin Douglas said Lord Carter believed the licence fee could be a possible answer to the woes of commercial broadcasters.
At present, more than £100m a year is earmarked to help the elderly switch to digital TV and any left over could help pay for wider broadband access or local news on ITV, our correspondent added.
But the BBC Trust has said that if any money is left over from the digital switchover, it might be better returned to licence-payers.
Virgin Media chief executive Neil Berkett says ISPs must offer viables alternative to illegal downloads.
Meanwhile, Stephen Garrett, executive chairman of Kudos productions - the makers of Spooks, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme he hoped the report would signal the introduction of legislation obliging internet service providers (ISPs) to tackle illegal file-sharing.
"We've been asking them nicely and so far they've declined," he said.
He went on to accuse the ISPs of "sitting idly by while money was haemorrhaging out" of the creative industries.
He wants to see ISPs send threatening letters sent to those involved in piracy reminding them that what they are doing "is theft" before their bandwidth is "squeezed", preventing them from continuing with their activities.
But Nicholas Lansman, secretary general of the ISP Association, said there were film and music licensing issues to be resolved before an effective clampdown on illegal file-sharing.
We also need to help Channel 4 to secure its future
