Broadband Coverage Concerns Strike Rural Norfolk
By: MarkJ - 21 March, 2008 (8:44 AM)

The Eastern Daily Press reports that North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb has called for a multi-agency approach to help fill the areas broadband gaps. Experts estimate that the number of households unable to access broadband in rural Norfolk is approximately twice the national average, although specific figures could not be revealed.

Curiously the broadband take-up for those that could access such services were also very low in the area, although it's possible that a small part of this could be blamed on Norwich cities free Wi-Fi scheme (news). Mr Lamb plans to consult with BT, Norfolk County Council and the East of England Development Agency (EEDA) with a view to solving the problem.
