Lord Carter's Digital Britain replacement named
The government has found a replacement for Lord Carter - the man who authored the Digital Britain report and has named Stephen Timms as his successor.
The Digital Britain report laid out future plans for improving UK broadband services and coverage. Treasury Minister, Stephen Timms, is now expected to take on responsibility for putting the report into action.
Timms is a former technology analyst and the ex-Minister of State for Competitiveness and Communications until 2008 and so he is certainly not unfamiliar with tackling broadband related problems. He had to handle many similar dilemmas during his time as Communications Minister almost two years ago.
