Inadequate broadband services are putting the East Riding of Yorkshire at an economic disadvantage, it has been claimed.

County Councillors Jane Evison and Jonathan Owen have called for investment in the local broadband infrastructure, particularly in remote areas of the countryside.

The representatives have arranged a meeting between East Yorkshire MP Greg Knight and the county council to discuss the issue.

Speaking to the Hull Daily Mail, Mrs Evison said she was determined to keep the matter of poor broadband cover in this area "at the forefront" of debate.

"It is a huge impediment for those people who cannot get access and puts areas of the East Riding at a big disadvantage," she said.

Adding his view, Mr Owen said the council would continue to look for solutions to the broadband connectivity problems faced by local residents.

Internet service provider KC, which serves Hull and the surrounding countryside, has pledged to deliver 2Mb broadband services to all subscribers by 2012.
