Jesse Norman, a Conservative Party candidate who hopes to be elected as Hereford's MP has recognised the area's poor broadband access.
Mr Norman has set up the Wireless Herefordshire initiative, with the intention of improving broadband access in the county.
In a recent meeting, Mr Norman discussed the different broadband technologies which could be used to bring connections to remote residences and businesses.
He commented: "Many of our rural areas still do not have decent mobile telephone coverage, let alone access to broadband services.
"Wireless Herefordshire has been set up for local people to think about how these and other technologies can be used effectively."
Mr Norman has taken advice from Fredi Nonyelu, chief executive of Briteyellow, a wireless internet service provider and chair of the Milton Keynes Science and Innovation Campus.
