Kit Malthouse MP is to hold a Broadband Summit at the Kingsclere’s Fieldgate Centre on Friday 3rd February from 10am - 12:00pm.
This follows up on a summit held 18 months ago and is to update constituents and interested parties on progress with the high speed broadband roll-out.
Kit said: “The Government’s broadband policy is taking clearer, and more promising, shape but there is still more to be done. I am inviting representatives from Hampshire County Council, BT and Broadband Delivery UK, the Government agency responsible for the broadband roll-out, to join us and speak. We should be able to shed some light on the situation.”
Following the speakers, there will be a question and answer session. The event will help constituents understand the plans of the various bodies and what alternatives are available for more rural areas.
Kit has been at the forefront of efforts in the House of Commons to improve broadband connectivity and was the first to call for an end to business rates charging on broadband infrastructure to boost investment.
