EAST RIDING BROADBAND SURVEY

Help to get a better Broadband service in Garton on the Wolds........

Broadband survey

As part of the Governments pledge that the United Kingdom will have the best broadband network in Europe by 2015, there is a desire to increase the availability of reliable broadband services across the UK. This means East Riding of Yorkshire could see superfast broadband rolled out and be available to many places where existing broadband service are slow and unreliable.

To do this, evidence is needed to show how current broadband provision is working locally for both businesses and individuals. The Council is being asked to bid for Government funding to assist with the delivery of broadband services. Success depends on the ability to demonstrate that families, businesses and communities in all areas of the region have a genuine need for faster and more reliable broadband.

Help East Riding of Yorkshire get better connected by completing the survey today saying why you need faster and reliable broadband.

Please pass on the details of this survey and encourage others to get involved.
