Debbie met with Maria Miller, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport on Tuesday. One of Maria's responsibilties is for broadband so Debbie pushed the case for higher broadband speeds in rural areas. Debbie has spent the last 2 years as a broadband champion encouraging people to complete the County Council Survey to justify the need for faster broadband
" We are lucky in Chalford that our exchange is being updated and therefore should have access to faster broadband during 2013. Stroud is also updated and Dursley is also due to be completed by 2013. It is essential we have the best broadband we can get to help those who work from home as well as for social use"
