Staffs residents urged to have say on super-fast broadband
Staffordshire County Council is asking for people's opinions before super-fast broadband is rolled out in the area.People living and working in the Staffordshire area have been urged to come forward and explain how super-fast broadband could improve their lives before it is too late.
Staffordshire County Council cabinet member for environment and assets Mark Winnington explained that although this is a busy time of year, people should try to make their opinions known in the online consultations before the December 31st deadline.
The local authority wants to know how the service could be best tailored to suit the needs of the communities in the area, before work begins.
"Sparing a few minutes to complete the survey will help us get an accurate picture of where super-fast broadband will make the biggest difference," Mr Winnington added.
The council has invested £7.44 million to bring the county up to speed with super-fast broadband access, with at least 90 per cent of properties set to receive high speeds by 2015.
A company will be selected to carry out the rollout in the new year.
