The UKs Minister for Digital Britain, Stephen Timms, has confirmed that the so-called Âbroadband taxÂ, proposed as part of the governmentÂs plans to fund nationwide access to high speed broadband, will become law before the next general election.
Speaking during a debate organised by the BCS Chartered Institute for IT, Timms said the tax would be presented before Parliament as part of the Finance Bill. If enacted, every household with a fixed-line telephone will have to pay the Â£0.50 (Â0.56) tax.Â
