A Norfolk MP has urged the local county council to do all it can to secure funding for internet infrastructure improvements.

Norman Lamb, MP for the North Norfolk constituency, warned councillors to submit their application for Broadband Delivery UK funding on time, reports the Eastern Daily Press.

The body is currently overseeing the financial aspects of the government's universal service commitment, and allocating funding to localised projects.

In a letter sent to the Chief Executive at Norfolk County Council, Mr Lamb said he was particularly concerned about digital participation in his constituency.

"It has poor access in some areas with many people not accessing broadband at all, and others suffering low speeds," he stated.

"For the economic development of Norfolk, it seems critical that we pursue this actively."

The government has pledged to provide nationwide 2Mb broadband by 2015, through the establishment of digital hubs across the UK.
