Faster Broadband and Mobile Coverage (2017 update)

In 2015 I said - Fast broadband connections are vital for businesses, schools and families. We all need more reliable mobile coverage, especially in rural areas. The Conservatives are making big investment where previous governments have failed to do so. I will be constanty be pushing for quicker progress as i did when i had the opportunity to press Sajid Javid Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport.

In 2017 - 85% have access to superfast broadband, and I have hosted a ministerial visit to North Devon to lobby for more; mobile coverage is improving thanks to investment by government.
