The UK requires high-speed internet capacity to ensure the next generation of services can be introduced to the nation.
That is according to Steve Nimmons, technology industry consultant, who said that government public services in particular will make a shift towards online in the coming years.
And this, he says, will mean it is crucial for people to have the access to the internet they require to complete forms and other essentials.
The government could use umbrella company
contractors to help with the superfast broadband rollout in the coming years.
Mr Nimmons: "That kind of rolls up, as networks are really restricted to the roll out of web 2.0 services and we don't want to find ourselves painted into a corner with the network speed being a constraining factor in terms of innovation and uptake of new services."
It comes after the new culture secretary Maria Miller said that she will look to remove any bureaucracy in the way of introducing quicker internet speeds.
