    In a series of presentations at its first investment analyst conference,
    Ofcom has given an outline of its next steps and longer-term aspirations for
    the further development of broadband in the UK.

    Historically the broadband debate in the UK has focused on rollout and
    coverage, with aspirations first defined four years ago - of services at up
    to 512kps being made available and taken up by around 15% of UK households.

    That focus has delivered important benefits; by the end of 2005 the UK will
    have one of most extensive broadband-enabled networks in Europe. However, as
    wholesale costs are reduced and new technologies emerge, Ofcom believes it
    is now appropriate to focus on the second generation of broadband services
    likely to emerge as competition increases between providers.
