Speech given to the Broadband Britain Summit in London by Ashley Highfield (28 Oct 2004)
Broadband potentially means a great future for the UK, but also runs the risk of creating a digitally deprived underclass.

The BBC, working in partnership with the industry and Government, can have a significant impact on creating 100% broadband Britain with all the tangible benefits to society that this will entail.

So, the BBC's proposed role can be summarised as firstly collaborating with any free-band or similar initiative, secondly using our airwaves to kick off a major digital media literacy campaign next year, and thirdly providing a rich mix of new content and existing television and radio programmes, on-demand, to drive demand.
