UK mobile phone users should share the pain of broadband tax, says BT

BT has called for the government’s proposed £6-a-year broadband tax to be extended to mobile phone users in a move that could reduce the size of the tax.In his Digital Britain report last month, the communications minister, Lord Carter, proposed a 50p-a-month levy on every fixed-line phone to meet the bill for getting the next generation of super-fast broadband networks to 90% of UK households by 2017.To read this report in The Guardian in full, see:
