Campaigning on Broadband speed

This campaign provides councillors and campaigned with a set of resources, including , that will help them become more informed about how they can help their residents improve their speeds. It will also help ensure that residents and businesses without adequate broadband speeds remain on the Government’s radar.

The LGA is calling for a minimum 10 Mbps speed to be set as a percentage of average national speeds because it would quickly become “outdated” as technology advances. This means when the national average of download speeds inevitably rises, the minimum standard will too. Councils now look forward to working with government to ensure these changes are implemented and fast and reliable broadband quickly becomes a reality for everyone.
