Such was the theme of the Broadband Summit held by Victoria Atkins, Member of Parliament for Louth & Horncastle, last Friday at Maltby-le-Marsh.
“More than 120 constituents - including Parish & District councillors, farmers, business people and others - came to express their frustration at the slow pace of broadband” commented Victoria. "I invited BT, OnLincolnshire, Virgin Media, Quickline and councillors to put the case, explain the problems and offer solutions.”
Maltby-le-Marsh featured last year as receiving very slow connectivity in the county and residents have pressed their MP for action.
“I was pleased that OnLincolnshire announced at the Summit that 540 postcodes within the constituency will be fitted with superfast broadband within a year. That represents nearly a quarter of the next phase of investment." said Victoria “I was delighted to have been the catalyst for this declared progress. We must now keep them up to the mark!”
