In this 21st century global economy, the sad fact is that British businesses are suffering in the Broadband famine - and many don't even realise it...

Internet Gaming, Video-Conferencing and virtual shopping - and a whole world of other exciting services yet to even be imagined...

Thank you

Importance

BB4B Portal: Continue to build www.broadband4britain.co.uk into the UK’s primary portal for broadband news, education and commentary.
BB4B Education: Working with trade associations, industry bodies and the national media - BB4B will communicate the opportunities and business benefits of broadband to the British public.  Our contact with the operators, regulators and legislators will be led by our insistence that Britain should know all of the facts about broadband.
BB4B Petition of Petitions: Work with all of the other regional or community-based campaigns to ensure that the BB4B petition represents the culmination of the UK’s desire for ubiquitous and affordable broadband.
BB4B Demand Aggregation Programme: By creating broadband champions and identifying communities of broadband users, BB4B will map the demand for broadband in the UK and invite industry to meet the challenge of delivering service to that demand.
BB4B Day: The broadband equivalent of the Jarrow March. We’re hungry – hungry for broadband that is – and we’re taking our opinions and our petition to Downing Street.
BB4B Think Tank: An apolitical programme aimed at promoting constructive, visionary and measurable strategy and policy on UK broadband roll-out.
