Better Broadband on the way?

Last year I called on the District Council to lead on a campaign locally for better Broadband - see here - it did not seem at the time there was so much interest but lots has happened. I can't claim all the moves since then are the result of that call!! Nationally the government have given it higher priority and locally we have seen the Minister Jeremy Hunt come to Stroud last week - I sadly missed as I was at a Parish Council meeting but by all accounts things are moving in the right direction. It was also good to see Stroud District Council leader Francis Roden in her comment piece say "we are going to pull together on this one, and really demand that we keep up with the urban areas." However there is still much work to be done - as Frances Roden says: "...look out for press reports as we all need to get involved."
