Freesat boxes could deliver broadband

by David Allen



The government could be turning to the likes of Freesat to step up and help provide the minimum broadband for all service of 2 Mbps, as a way of delivering on its promises made in the provisional Digital Britain report.

This comes from the culture minister, Andy Burnham, who has pin pointed the core set top box as a means to achieve broadband coverage.
The core set top box is equipment used for the switchover programme which will be given out to some people under the Digital Switchover Help Scheme.

Around ten per cent of the population have not made any provision to switch to digital, and it is therefore being assumed that these people have no broadband either.

With consumers turning to Freesat and its terrestrial rival Freeview for digital TV services, a broadband connection could be put into these set top boxes too and thus help the government achieve its broadband goal.
