Broadband Update: Extra Funding Secured!
As a local man who grew up in rural South Gloucestershire, I do really appreciate the frustration of the remaining households that have not been covered to date with access to super fast, fibre broadband.
I was recently successful in pressing Government for additional funding for our local program, with the Minister granting £900,000. As our MP, I will be pressing for the Council to use this additional funding to boost broadband coverage, particularly in our most rural areas, and for neighbourhoods which are yet to be 100% connected.
I was delighted to have been able to successfully press the Government to release the funding for this key project for rural families and businesses. Together we can make a powerful case for the Council’s requests for funding to improve lives for our community.
