According to a recent document reportedly seen by The Times the broadband tax of £6 per year which has been proposed by Gordon Brown to help subsidise the next generation of broadband speeds could almost tripe for some households.
This tax on landlines will be levied with VAT on each landline that a household uses. This means that nearly 2 million households with more than one landline could pay double or even triple the original amount. There has been no comment from the Government about this.
The plans are expected to be published next year. However we must wait for the General Election next year as the Conservatives say if they win they will scrap the plan.
