A Councillor in Nottinghamshire has reiterated her intent to see superfast broadband installed in the area.

Diana Meale, who is Chair of the Economic Development Committee at Nottinghamshire County Council, said that although there is a divide between the best and worst connected regions of her county, things will improve in the near future, according to a press release issued by the council.

"The Better Broadband for Nottinghamshire programme aims to close the digital divide that exists locally and will make Nottinghamshire one of the best digitally connected counties in the country," she added.

Over 52,000 premises will have had superfast broadband fitted by 2016, meaning 95 per cent of homes in the county will eventually wired up to the network.

But progress has been slow in some areas, with some residents arguing their towns or villages should be prioritised by the Better Broadband for Nottinghamshire project.
