Broadband: Connecting Everyone

Ensuring high quality broadband reaches every corner of our constituency is a key priority for me. Farmers need to access livestock movement reports online, grandparents want to see their grandkids on Skype and small rural businesses should be able to sell all over the world.

Inspired by Captain Cook
