NECC has responded to the Government’s national broadband strategy, entitled ‘Britain’s Superfast Broadband Future’, by writing to the Secretary of State for Culture Media and Sport and the Olympics, as well as the Secretary of State for Business Innovation and Skills outlining some of the key digital infrastructure issues facing businesses in the North East. A letter has also been sent to all of the region’s MPs in a bid to raise awareness of these issues.
In particular, NECC welcomed the extra funding that has been made available for digital infrastructure investment across the UK. However, NECC has also called for a renewed sense of urgency from Government at all levels to ensure that investment in digital infrastructure is carried out quickly and coherently to support economic recovery and growth moving forward.
