An MP in Cambridgeshire has claimed that broadband services received in the south of the region should be improved.
Andrew Lansley has told The Royston Crow that he is "very concerned" over the quality of internet available in the region, which has been blamed on the condition of phone lines.
In an interview with the newspaper, he explained that broadband connections are lagging behind the government's minimum recommended 2Mb speed.
He added: "Many families and businesses are reliant on a high-quality connection and it is clear that the government and BT are not doing enough to ensure that these needs are met."
The Country and Land Association recently backed the European Commission's recommendation that the government should fund the introduction of broadband services in rural areas.
State funding should be used to provide services in areas where service providers have no investment plans, the organisation claimed.
