Suffolk Coastal plans meeting with chief of BT Openreach over rural broadband
Community leaders in east Suffolk are hoping to raise rural broadband issues with the chief of BT Openreach.
Suffolk Coastal councillor Mark Amoss disclosed details of the high-profile meeting last month.
Speaking to Wickham Market Parish Council, Mr Amoss said the meeting was likely to take place towards the end of August.
“It will be a good opportunity to ask some questions,” he said.
“If there’s anything from a Wickham Market perspective that needs raising let me know.”
Mr Amoss added that he could be there “all night” with the issues raised by people in the villages of Pettistree, Dallinghoo and Charsfield, where internet connectivity is said to be poor.
Openreach is the part of the BT Group that runs the UK’s broadband infrastructure. Locally, the Better Broadband for Suffolk programme is supporting the roll-out of fast broadband to the entire county.
