The Federation of Small Businesses is calling on the Government to ensure that all SMEs receive at least a basic level of broadband by the end of the Parliament.

Nearly half a million (480,000) small businesses cannot access superfast broadband, with 192,000 not even being able to access 10 Mbps and theFSB wants the Government to commit to a Universal Service Obligation (USO), guaranteeing a good service.

Mike Cherry, FSB National Chairman, said:Too many small businesses are held back by poor broadband coverage and slow speeds.”

We agree – good broadband is crucial if companies are to take advantage of the digital revolution and the services that we offer.
