Ultrafast Broadband Opportunities in Andover

Virgin Media have just announced a £3 billion investment in ultrafast broadband and Portway and Walworth Business Parks in Andover are both to set to be connected.

If businesses want to find out more about this fantastic opportunity Virgin Media are holding breakfast meetings next week on Wednesday at 7.30am until 9am at Walworth Enterprise Centre, Duke Close, West Way, Andover, SP10 5AP and on Thursday 28th July at 7.30am until 9am at Portway Football Stadium, Portway West Business Park, Andover, SP10 3LF.

Please RSVP to David Gleave of Test Valley Borough Council at DGleave@testvalley.gov.uk and pass on this information to any businesses who you think might be interested.

Broadband is the biggest issue for constituents who contact me and fast, reliable connectivity is an absolute must for businesses looking to compete and grow, so this is great news. We’re phenomenally lucky in the UK to have prosperous businesses away from big cities when in other countries ‘rural’ often means ‘poor’. To keep this up Government has to work with companies like Virgin Media to get all businesses connected and I think reintroducing the old broadband voucher scheme for businesses, as the Committee in Parliament recently recommended, would be a great start.
