Helping to get better broadband

slow-broadbandI am ashamed to tell you that in some parts of the constituency it is almost quicker to send a letter by post than expect an email to arrive safely. High speed broadband remains a pipe dream if you live out in the sticks. This dismal state of affairs has got to change. I have joined together with Parliamentary colleagues from all parties to form a new Broadband and Mobile Telecoms Committee which can bring pressure to bear on Government and industry to get some action. Such a Committee has never existed at Westminster before. Today I was appointed Chairman. At last there is a united voice at Westminster pressing for big changes.
