Critics say rural broadband in Devon is in dire straits, partly because EDDC failed to work together with DCC to get maximum funding.
Now more than 100 MPs concerned about lack of broadband investment in their own areas have written to George Osborne, as detailed in this extract from the Broadband for Rural Devon and Somerset (B4RDS) Facebook page:
‘Over 100 MP’s of all parties have today taken an open letter to George Osborne calling for him to invest in fixed and mobile broadband. This is before next Wednesday’s announcement of the Autumn spending cuts. If your MP hasn’t signed you should ask him/her why not.’
Link to the letter, and names of MP’s who’ve signed, is here:
