Suffolk Broadband Campaign Conference
9 March 2012, 06:00
Suffolk MPs, businesses and council are all meeting as part of the big county wide campaign to bring better and faster broadband speeds to Suffolk.
The campaign for better broadband is now entering a final month with a target of 10,000 people filling in the questionnaire that is designed to try and convince internet companies to invest in the area.
A major conference is being held today at the Apex in Bury St Edmunds to demonstrate local demand and need for better services.
The meeting will also start a on month consultation to give people the chance to speak about how £21 million of public money is invested in the project.
At the conference, there will be high profile speakers like Suffolk County Council leader Mark Bee, Waveney MP Peter Aldous and Bury St Edmunds MP David Ruffley. There will also be a demonstration from a school on how they use broadband to help with their education.
