Digital Divide - Update

19th February 2018

I welcome the news over the weekend that the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport have made an agreement with the Church of England to use church spires, and farm buildings, to help boost mobile and broadband connectivity in our rural areas.

The agreement shows that our medieval buildings can play a vital role in delivering 21st century services – and the guidance being put in place will ensure that any new digital infrastructure will not impact on the character, architectural and historical significance of our church buildings.

This deal builds on the great work already carried out by the Dioceses of Norwich and Chelmsford, with WiSpire, in recent years and marks another step towards achieving total superfast broadband and mobile coverage – which I continue to campaign for in Westminster.
