Thousands register for broadband
ALMOST 3,000 residents and businesses have backed a campaign so far to bring superfast broadband to Peterborough and Cambridgeshire.
They registered their demand for better broadband in the first week of the campaign to Get Cambridgeshire Connected.
Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council are leading the campaign to bring access to superfast broadband to at least 90 per cent of businesses and homes in the area and better connectivity for all remaining premises by 2015.
The project requires people to register their support to show broadband suppliers there is a demand for the service.
Cambridgeshire County Councillor Ian Bates said: “The campaign has got off to a great start. We know there is a high demand for better broadband across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, particularly in rural areas, but we need to be able to demonstrate this to broadband suppliers to attract substantial investment.
“I would urge everyone to do their bit by registering. It only takes a minute and does not commit you to anything.”
