Broadband coverage

Our Member of Parliament, Philip Davies, has invited British Telecom to a public meeting in order to address the perceived problem of broadband coverage in West Yorkshire, specifically in the Burley in Wharfedale area.
The meeting is to be held in the Queen's Hall on Friday 07 October between 6 and 7pm. They advise that places are strictly limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and need to be reserved in advance.
For details on how to reserve your place, and what topics will be covered, please refer to the September update page under the "Broadband" menu button, or click here.
This is your opportunity to help resolve any issues you might have with your internet connection, whether through BT or any other provider.
