Campaigning for improved broadband coverage

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.
