Superfast Broadband

Released On 9th Jun 2015

Broadband is no longer a luxury, it is an absolute basic requirement to run a business in the 21st century.  
Superfast Broadband

Our President is soon to meet with your MP Marcus Fysh and will ask him to add the voice of our business community to the growing national voice of disquiet over BT’s patchy rollout of superfast broadband.    Working from his home at South Petherton, our President has first-hand experience of the pain of inadequate broadband coverage.  You may recall the President circulated an email on 27 May, outlining his plight and how to obtain a price reduction from BT. 

We are aware that other members have similar issues, and the 27 May email prompted responses from urban and rural members, ranging from frustration, to relocation; with a possible loss of jobs.  All of this is unacceptable. 

If you have any issues, email Marcus Fysh marcus: fysh.mp@parliament.uk and copy to president@yeovilchamber.org  A business briefing event is being planned for later this year, at which it is hoped a senior BT representative will be questioned over their responsibilities and obligations.
