Moving to the next generation of broadband technology could deliver huge economic rewards, says a report.

The Broadband Stakeholder Group report said the benefit could be in excess of £16bn - the estimated cost of upgrading the UK's net infrastructure.

But those benefits should not tempt a rush to invest too quickly and boost speeds, it said.

It warned that some of the benefits will only materialise when high-speed networks have reached most UK homes.
