Digital champion to present broadband manifesto
The UK's digital champion Martha Lane Fox is to deliver the Manifesto for a Networked Nation, which features details on how to get ten million people online by 2012, to Downing Street.
In a column for the Daily Mirror, Ms Lane Fox outlined how internet access could change the lives of the fifth of the population who have never used it.
She wrote in the newspaper: "I would like to see everyone who is looking for work online, as well as everyone who is about to retire.
"This ambition would create real social change."
Ms Lane Fox recently praised broadband bundle provider TalkTalk in a blog posting for its involvement in the Race Online 2012 campaign, which has seen businesses commit to getting people online by the year of the London Olympics.
