Digital Britain's action points (key recommendations in italics)
Broadband and digital networks:
Establish a strategy group to maximise "market-led" coverage of next-generation broadband; ease access to BT's ducts, making it easier for other internet providers to lay fibre optic to the home.
Examine whether public money is needed to "further next-generation broadband deployment".
Clear the way for "fourth generation" mobile phone services, by clearing radio spectrum used for television.
Examine if digital switchover help scheme should include help with internet services
Clearly commit to the existing digital radio standard, and work to the eventual switch-off of FM .
Examine whether it will be needed to provide "further support to foster UK creative ambition" and "alternative funding mechanisms to advertising revenues".
Creation of a "Rights Agency" aimed at finding technical and legal solutions to digital piracy, funded by a tax on internet companies and film studios.
New law requiring internet providers to notify illegal downloaders that they are breaking copyright law, and requirement to hand over details of "repeat infringers" to music and film companies.
Channel 4, television and media mergers:
Explore relaxation of media merger rules.
Examine terms of trade between independent television producers and broadcasters.
Establish if a "sustainable second public service organisation providing competition for quality to the BBC can be defined and designed, drawing in part on Channel 4's assets and a recast remit". Ministers will start by looking at tie-ups with Channel 4 and BBC Worldwide, but Government is "evaluating a range of options and organisational solutions".
Every house to get an entitlement to 2 megabit broadband service, with examination as to who should fund it.
Creation of "champions" to encourage universal take-up, with support of BBC. Make public services easy to use online. Widen media literacy.
