The reality of broadband coverage here in Barnsley is that too often, it simply isn’t good enough.
Lots of constituents have raised the issue of sub-standard broadband with me, and my survey revealed that 95% of residents in Barnsley East aren’t satisfied with their coverage.
Over recent months, I’ve been campaigning for progress on this, meeting Superfast South Yorkshire; writing to the Government and broadband providers; and raising it in the House of Commons.
As part of my campaign, I recently met with Superfast South Yorkshire in Cudworth, one of the areas across Barnsley they’ve been working on.
I’ll keep pressing providers to do more to tackle this.
