Bradley Stoke Town Councillors visited Westminster on Wednesday to step up the campaign for faster broadband connections in the Town. Town Mayor Cllr Ben Walker and Councillors John Ashe, Brian Hopkinson, Robert Jones and Sarah Pomfret attended a meeting at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport with Communications Minister Ed Vaizey MP.
The meeting, which was organised by newly elected Filton and Bradley Stoke MP Jack Lopresti, was described by councillors as a success and the Minister has agreed to write to both BT and Virgin Media about the issue.
Town Mayor Cllr Ben Walker said:
“The meeting was very positive, the minister explained what the coalition government were doing about broadband nationwide and agreed to highlight the problems in Bradley Stoke in letters to both BT and Virgin.”
Cllr Robert Jones added:
“This is a huge boost for our Broadband Campaign in Bradley Stoke, and we are extremely grateful to Jack (Lopresti MP) for arranging the meeting. We won’t be giving up, we will keep campaigning till every house has access to a high speed connection.”
