East Riding Super Fast Broadband Myth

ERYC are proclaiming how wonderful the new superfast Broadband is. Dont believe all the myth.

As part of my elected duties I sit on the Pension Committee and the Environment and Regeneration Overview and Scrutiny Committee.

On Wednesday, at the Environment and Regeneration Overview and Scrutiny Committee, the following was discussed:

  1. Petitions x 3
  2. Rural Communities and Businesses
  3. Rural Broadband and Mobile Phone Coverage
  4. Flood and Coastal Risk Management and Strategy
  5. Coastal Change Management

In Rural Broadband and Mobile Phone Coverage I raised the issue that fibre will only go to the cabinets NOT to individual homes. I believe this will be detrimental to the economic development of the East Riding economy moving forward.

I enquired if there was an option for residents to pay BT to connect fibre from the cabinet to their homes.

It was confirmed that there is no such option.

I conclude that ERYC are currently financing a fundamentally flawed Broadband network.
