Norwich risks being left behind as the UK's broadband revolution continues, it has been claimed.

Speaking to the Norwich Evening News, local MP Simon Wright noted that it is not only rural areas that continue to be affected by limited coverage and low download speeds.

The Liberal Democrat backed the nationwide campaign for improved countryside broadband, but said parts of Norwich were also continuing to struggle.

"It's a bit of a mixed bag in Norwich. I have had complaints from people who say their broadband speed is not what the companies who provided it to them said it would be," Mr Wright stated.

"It is patchy even in Norwich and if you are a business with clients and customers in other parts of the county then it is a vital issue that the broadband is up to speed."

Ann Steward, Cabinet Member for Sustainable Development on Norfolk County Council, recently commented that improving the local broadband infrastructure is one of its key priorities.

The council has held discussions with Broadband Delivery UK in a bid to assess how it can successfully bid for public network upgrade funding.
