Superfast Broadband In Rural Areas

EDM number 556 in 2017-19, proposed by Timothy Farron on 20/11/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Countryside and Internet and cybercrime.

That this House notes that having superfast broadband is an important service in the UK, especially as more and more people choose to work remotely; is concerned about current superfast broadband coverage throughout the country, especially in rural areas which would benefit the most from superfast broadband connectivity; and supports a change in the planning law to ensure that all new builds have superfast broadband as standard, to prevent poor connectivity in the first place as well as to avoid expensive and disruptive works in the future.

This motion has been signed by a total of 16 MPs.
