RORY TO HOLD COMMUNITY BROADBAND MEETING FOR NORTHERN PARISHES
Rory is inviting residents in the North of his constituency to an open meeting in Roadhead village hall on Sunday 28th July from 16:30 – 17:30, to promote community broadband activism in the area, and to address local resident’s concerns about current broadband provision, and prospects for future improvement.
Rory has championed a campaign to deliver Cumbria the fastest rural broadband in Europe, and played a key role in securing the £40 million contract between BT and Cumbria County Council, which will see 93% of homes and businesses gain access to superfast broadband, with speeds of 24mbps or greater, by the end of 2015. Over two and half years, he has worked with several communities in his constituency who were unlikely to be included in the roll out, and is keen to now help other communities in a similar position – adopting the community-focused model which has proven to be so successful in Fell End.
Anyone with further queries is encouraged to contact Rory’s constituency office on 01768 758 772.
