Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in science, engineering and IT may be interested to hear that the prime minister has announced that every home will have access to super-fast broadband.

Gordon Brown claimed that the move could clash billions from public service costs and could lead to the creation of more than 250,000 jobs under a 'radical' package of internet-led measures to transform the UK by 2020, announced in the Budget.

Mr Brown said: "I want Britain to be the world leader in the digital economy which will create over a quarter of a million skilled jobs by 2020.

"I want to make a radical set of proposals which include transfers and shifts in existing spending, including being prepared to cancel current projects, and which together with more detailed plans set by the chancellor in the Budget."

Meanwhile the Conservative Party have promised to provide universal access to super-fast broadband using digital switchover cash from the BBC license fee to part-fund it.
