Internet: Suffolk

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 13 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (1) what percentage of homes in rural Suffolk have access to (a) dial-up internet connections, (b) broadband connections and (c) high-speed broadband connections; (201496)

(2) what estimate he has made of the number of households in Suffolk without access to the internet, broken down by income band.

I have been asked to reply.

The matter raised is the responsibility of the independent regulator, the Office of Communications (Ofcom), which is accountable to Parliament rather than Ministers. Accordingly, I have asked the chief executive of Ofcom to reply directly to the hon. Member. Copies of the chief executive's letter will be placed in the Libraries of both Houses.
