Amanda Milling, Member of Parliament for Cannock Chase, has launched a survey on local broadband and mobile phone services. This is to gather more information about the problems faced by local people using broadband and mobile phones.
Since being elected in May, broadband access and mobile phone coverage has been a common theme raised by residents with Amanda. Complaints range from poor mobile phone signals to slow broadband speeds. Amanda wants local residents to share their experiences of our local coverage.
Amanda is asking Cannock Chase residents to let her know about their service so she can highlight the problems faced by local people during a debate in Parliament on the 12th October. Amanda is particularly interested in coverage, service reliability and access to services.
Amanda Milling said: “If you’re a business based in the area, a grandparent skyping your grandchildren, a family watching on demand TV or an avid gamer you need a good broadband service. Equally mobile phone coverage is essential for businesses, residents including teenagers – more and more people are relying on mobile phones and a good signal is a modern day essential for just about everyone. That’s why I am carrying out the first ever survey on broadband and mobile phone coverage in the Cannock Chase constituency.”
Amanda added, “I want everyone to share their experiences of local broadband services and mobile coverage so I can raise the issue, not only in Parliament, but with service providers. To take part in the survey please visit www.amandamilling.com .”
Amanda Milling previously welcomed new that Sandy Lane in Cannock is the street with the fastest broadband in the country. The survey by uSwitch.com found that Sandy Lane, Cannock, had the fastest connection speed in the country with an average of 72.86Mbps over the last six months. Additional figures show that 3,234 homes and businesses across Cannock Chase now have access to superfast broadband. Amanda Milling believes that this is not unfortunately a benefit enjoyed by many in the area, hence her “Big Broadband and mobile” survey.
