Broadband: Eastbourne

Volume 502: debated on Tuesday 8 December 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what recent estimate he has made of the number of people resident in Eastbourne constituency who have access to a broadband internet connection; and whether he has made an estimate of the time required to make such access available to all such people. (303009)

This Department has not undertaken any estimates of the number of people in Eastbourne constituency who have access to a broadband internet connection. The Government’s universal service commitment will ensure that homes across the UK have access to a line capable of delivering 2 Mbps by 2012. This should ensure that all homes in Eastbourne have access to broadband within three years, if they have not already.
