Fast, reliable broadband and mobile coverage is important for the lives of many local residents and businesses. I have been working to improve coverage in all parts of the constituency, especially in rural areas.
Progress continues in Goudhurst's Community Fibre Project as fibre broadband become available for a further 120 properties in the following postcodes: TN17 1LP, TN17 2ND, TN17 2NJ, TN17 2NL, TN17 1HE, TN17 1EG, TN17 1EE, TN17 1ED
Greg has welcomed the announcement by Building Digital UK (BDUK) to give the green light to Goudhurst’s Project A Community Fibre Partnership which will see more than 350 properties offered full fibre connections.
Households in Ashurst are starting to benefit from super-fast broadband as Openreach nears completion of rolling out its full fibre network, which will also be extended to properties in the Stone Cross area.
Greg has written to the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Oliver Dowden, to not delay its approval for the Goudhurst Demand Lead Project to go ahead when it comes to the department to be signed off.
