Ed Vaizey: Europe 'looks to UK as leaders' on broadband


The government's strategy for improving broadband in the UK has been criticised as "misguided" in a parliamentary report.

The BBC's technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones explained more before Ed Vaizey, Minister for Culture, Communications the Creative Industries, said the government was "very happy" it would meet the target of 90% of households with a fast broadband connection by 2015.

Speaking to the Today programme he said that "the aim is not just fast speeds but also a competitive marketplace".

He said: "We do have the most competitive market in Europe... the rest of Europe looks to us as leaders in this."
