North Yorkshire broadband to be debated in Westminster header image

Published: 7th Jan 2014

The rollout of super-fast broadband in rural North Yorkshire is to be debated in Westminster tomorrow (January 7th).

York Outer MP Julian Sturdy has arranged the talks as he hopes to convince the government to release the necessary funds to improve connectivity in remote areas earlier than planned. 

Mr Sturdy told the York Press he is pleased with the work the coalition-backed Superfast North Yorkshire project has already completed, but now wants the benefits to be expanded to rural locations. 

The MP said he hopes to put "sufficient pressure on the government to release the next tranche of funding earlier than has been planned".

If Mr Sturdy's efforts prove unsuccessful, North Yorkshire residents should consider satellite broadband

This technology is available now and is a proven means of bringing fast and reliable internet access to even the most remote parts of the UK.
