Achieving connectivity for all South East Cambridgeshire is a matter of upmost concern to my constituents.
With regards to broadband, the superfast broadband rollout has now reached over 95% of the county and is aiming for 99% coverage by 2020. I actively engaged with all relevant authorities in an effort to keep the South East Cambridgeshire region front of mind with regards to any extra funding provision available and to ensure that no stone is left unturned when it comes to achieving full connectivity.
When it comes to mobile coverage in the region, I am fully engaged in an ongoing dialogue with all the network providers. I have asked those living and working in the region to keep her updated on any areas with poor reception so that she can feed this information back to the relevant providers. Providers are sometimes unaware of individual 'not spots' and by making them aware that steps can be taken to address and improve the situation.
In a fast changing digital world, being connected and having adequate broadband, mobile and Wi-Fi accessibility is essential not only to enable businesses to thrive but also to improve general health and well being and make accessible the wealth of online services and information now available in a world where everything is moving in this direction.
If you are experiencing problems with your mobile reception or broadband please do email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and please include the postcode and network provider, where relevant, for the area in question.
