Secure broadband roll-out


I helped secure the Government’s investment in the roll-out of superfast broadband to rural Lincolnshire.


I will keep up the pressure on Lincolnshire County Council to maintain progress in extending the roll-out of superfast broadband to businesses and residents in this constituency.

UPDATE: April 2017

The latest updates I have received on Superfast broadband say the rollout is now available to 92% of premises nationally, of which around 4.3 million have got their availability thanks to the Government’s Superfast Broadband Programme.

We recently announced £440 million of funding is being returned from suppliers for reinvestment which will help provide coverage for up to an additional 600,000 premises.

In the Grantham and Stamford Constituency the Government funded BDUK programme has made superfast broadband available to an additional 10,591 homes and businesses.

Current superfast coverage, both funded by Government and delivered commercially is 92.4% and estimated superfast coverage by December 2017 will be 96.3%
