Broadband is the biggest issue for constituents who contact me and fast, reliable connectivity is an absolute must. Without it people can’t carry out basic tasks and businesses struggle to grow, so it’s fantastic news that Hampshire County Council’s Superfast Broadband Team and BT Openreach are investing £28.4 million to extend coverage of superfast broadband to 95% of premises across the county by September 2018. I’ve lobbied hard for the government to press ahead with plans to get everyone online and I hope this news is a sign of things to come.
You can see if superfast broadband is available for your home or business by visiting their site. And if your area is already up and running you can contact one of the Internet Service Providers to upgrade to the faster service. Hampshire County Council have also produced a price comparison site to help you find the best deal.
