Politicians from Norfolk are attempting to improve broadband in the county by discussing the matter with BT.

MPs are due to meet representatives from BT Openreach in September to analyse problems relating to broadband coverage, the Lowestoft Journal reported.

Richard Bacon and Chloe Smith will attend the meeting on September 11th and it is hoped that more MPs will agree to join them.

The main areas of discussion will be the need for improved reliability of broadband for consumers and businesses, as well as the problem with ineffective connections experienced in 'not-spots'.

Mr Bacon told the newspaper: "Broadband is vital to the rural economy yet it is estimated that a quarter of rural areas are in 'not-spots', where homes and businesses cannot get access to fixed-line broadband because they are too far from the nearest exchange."
