Broadband for Northumberland

Keeping up with the digital revolution is vital for the long-term health and wellbeing of our children, our businesses and our older people.

Broadband is now the fourth utility alongside water, gas and electricity. We must make sure no household is left behind. 

In Parliament, Anne-Marie successfully lobbied for the inclusion of a “Universal Service Obligation” for broadband in the new Digital Economy Act which just passed Parliament – this means broadband is now considered an essential utility and places new service requirements on providers.

Since she was elected in 2015, more and more villages have been connected to superfast broadband - now at 83%.  Anne-Marie will not stop campaigning until we have reached 100%.
