Labour’s plan to give broadband away for free could end up costing as much as £100bn, according to BT chief executive Philip Jansen.
That figure would be five times as much Labour estimates - the party's figure is £20bn, plus around £230m annual running costs.
Mr Jansen said the cost of making broadband free could be as high as £5bn a year, and highlighted the company's £60bn pension liability.
