A tax to pay for next-generation broadband in the UK is expected to pass into law in 2010.

The tax, known as the Next Generation Levy, will see every home with a landline charged 50p per month to fund the rollout of superfast broadband.

It will be introduced in the Finance Bill, according to chancellor Alistair Darling, which is expected to pass into law in 2010.
