[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Years ago, BT was given approximately £2 billion pounds to connect every house and business in the UK to Superfast/ fibre optic broadband. However, the fact is that, as of today’s date, half of King Street in West London has no access to any type of fibre optic broadband connection. Many businesses and residents are affected by a slow internet connection that has constant issues causing loss of time and money.
The Government’s website boasts that through 47 local projects the Government and Local Authorities are investing over £1.7 billion in improving broadband. One wonders if that is yet more tax payers’ money going to BT and, if so, why is it that half of King Street and the surrounding area still only has access to slow broadband?
PC POINT is a well-established computer shop located in King Street, that offers IT support to many of the businesses and residents in the area. They have tried in many ways to request a line upgrade by involving British Telecom, Virgin Media and other Internet Service Providers.
Recently a barrister has written to Andy Slaughter MP about the broadband problem and he is raising the problem with BT. Meanwhile, we invite businesses and residents to subscribe here and leave a comment to the petition below.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
