The Government is seeking views on Broadband. Through this call for evidence, the Department of Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) wants to hear views and experiences of consumers' broadband connectivity in rural and remote areas of the UK. In addition, DCMS would also like to receive information on both the known benefits of broadband services and the current barriers to deployment and take-up.
Additional evidence, either from the UK or abroad, on technology availability, maturity, capabilities and costs, from suppliers and vendors is also welcomed.
The evidence gathered will enable DCMS to assess the options available for delivering improved connectivity to areas where the costs of delivering better digital infrastructure have so far proven to be a barrier to deployment.
The Government is also seeking contributions from organisations that represent all of these groups.
Given the poor connectivity which many residents experience in the Chelford Parish, if you are a resident household or a business user of broadband services then please complete the call to evidence via the online survey, which can be found at:
The deadline is the 11th June 2021
