5,000 residents pledged in campaign

Over 5,000 Nottinghamshire residents and businesses have now pledged in Nottinghamshire County Council’s campaign for better internet speeds in the County’s many broadband ‘slow spots’.

The aim of the Superfast Broadband for Notts campaign was to collect at least 5,000 pledges, along with people’s postcodes and details of their current internet speeds.

The information will be used to lobby the telecoms companies to prioritise the upgrading of the county’s broadband infrastructure.

The 5000th pledger was Colin Paul who lives in Cropwell Bishop.
