Broadband service boost requested in Norfolk
A campaigner in Norfolk has called for a boost to broadband services in the region.

Nicola Currie, eastern region director of the Country Land and Business Association, was speaking after the prime minister Gordon Brown pledged that there will be radical improvements to broadband across the country over the coming decade, reports the Norfolk Eastern Daily Press.

"Obviously the pledge of a 'radical package' of internet-led measures coupled with funding is very welcome," she said.

But Ms Currie said that rural homes and businesses firstly need improvements to their standard broadband services.

Chris Starkie, chief executive of the county's economic development partnership Shaping Norfolk's Future, added that broadband is a key priority area for his organisation.

Earlier this month, the East of England Next Generation Broadband Summit was held at Newmarket Racecourse, where local agencies discussed plans to work more closely in the provision of high-quality broadband.
