Thou­sands reg­is­ter for broad­band

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

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.”
