CCP Appeals To UK Minister To Back Broadband Clarity

A communications watchdog entity has asked the broadband minister to work towards eliminating gaps between advertised broadband speeds and what users actually get in real life.

Independent organisation, Communications Consumer Panel has urged the broadband minister of the coalition government, Ed Vaizey, to look into misleading broadband advertisements, technology news website Computer Weekly has reported.

Lead by chairman Anna Bradley, the concerned consumer panel has urged the minister in a letter to come out in support of campaigns initiated by communication market regulatory firm Ofcom and the Advertising Standards Authority, to make sure Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provide clearer and actual information about the broadband speeds they offer.

"We hope we can count on your support in underscoring to the industry the need for them to do more and better to ensure consumers are treated fairly in this crucial market place," Bradley stated.
