Faster Broadband coming to a socket near you

Checking on the Broadband speed in Lakenheath Library, faster than at my home but I am still looking forward to the village getting better broadband

Throughout the last 4 years I have regularly been out knocking on doors and delivering surveys asking residents what their issues are, beyond attending Council meetings playing my part in making strategic decisions, helping with individual issues it’s important to ask and understand what the overriding priorities are for our community.

Almost always, for those of us who use the internet as a part of our daily lives, improved reliability of our broadband connection and its speed are in the top three priorities people say they want. This can be immensely frustrating if, like me, you work part of your time from home or indeed, for the family trying to connect a variety of devices to the internet at once, we all know the speed of Broadband across Row Heath’s villages is woeful.

That’s why I was pleased to have played my part in one of those big strategic decisions that will have an impact in every home in my Division. Suffolk Conservatives took the decision to spend £10Million to deliver a county wide project to provide between 8Mbs to 20Mbs high speed Broadband to 100% of Suffolk homes and communities.

Other counties have funded variations of the proposals often settling for a 95% coverage, I argued that it must be 100% coverage as I was sure Row Heath would probably have been in that 5%!

So by 2015 we will all have the benefits of high speed Broadband to enable us to work and enjoy its benefits. Look out for new BT green cabinets springing up its means that high speed broadband piped into your home is not far away, I can’t wait.
