Broadband Speed in North Oxfordshire
Victoria Prentis, Member of Parliament for North Oxfordshire, has welcomed the success of the Government’s Superfast Broadband programme in her constituency.
Following Government funding of £8.18million in Oxfordshire, current superfast coverage has reached 92.7%, and is estimated to reach 95.0% in North Oxfordshire by December. In addition, a new Broadband Universal Service Obligation will give consumers the right to request fast, affordable broadband wherever they live and work. This will mean that by 2020 everyone can request a connection of at least 10Mbps – around half the speed of superfast, but still quick enough to download a half-hour TV show in two minutes.
Victoria commented “I receive a lot of correspondence from my constituents about the speed of broadband in North Oxfordshire. I recognise that, for many of us, slow broadband can be a major frustration and a strong connection is very important for families and businesses alike. I am therefore very pleased that the Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) programme has made superfast broadband available to over 11,000 homes and businesses in my constituency.”
