Superfast broadband switch-on gets thumbs up from Holmes Chapel MP
1:49pm Friday 20th December 2013 in News
FIONA Bruce MP welcomed the ‘super switch-on day’ at Holmes Chapel on December 17.
“There is nothing more frustrating than a slow or unreliable internet connection. It can stop you being able to work from home, expand your business or watch your favourite TV programmes online,” she said.
“That’s why this Government is making sure that people around the country, especially in rural communities, get access to superfast broadband.
“Over 10,000 more homes and businesses are being connected every week as a result of the national superfast broadband programme. Last week marked a massive milestone locally – the switch on of superfast broadband in Cheshire for the first time, just in time for Christmas.”
Super Switch on Day sees the village of Holmes Chapel “switch on”, and over the coming months more and more of Cheshire will start enjoying faster broadband speeds as our rollout reaches more and more locations around the county and across the country.
By March 2015 an additional 68,000 of Cheshire’s homes and businesses will have access to superfast speeds as a result of Government investment.
Fiona added: “I am particularly pleased that the Government has listened to the concerns I have continuously expressed both inside and outside Parliament on behalf of my constituents: - “investment in superfast broadband is the single greatest action that can be taken to drive economic growth and improve the quality of life of residents.”
