Help to bring faster broadband to all of Peterborough


eterborough’s villages along with some areas in the city, including Hampton, Sugar Way and Orton Southgate, can only get broadband speeds of less than 1mb per second – making it difficult to download web content and videos. Sugar Way resident Karen Gilgan said: “I tried to watch Usain Bolt’s 100m on YouTube. A 46 second video clip took me nearly two minutes to watch and it buffered six times, it is very annoying. I’d like to watch educational videos with my two year old daughter but it is impossible.” Because of this, Peterborough ’s businesses and residents are being asked to sign a petition to show suppliers that there is a demand to bring a quicker and wider reaching broadband network across all areas of the county. Karen added: “I did a speed test and I can only download 0.53mb per second as opposed to the 25mb per second you can get with superfast broadband. I really hope as many people as possible sign the online petition so that everyone in the city can receive superfast broadband.” So if like Karen, you find your computer

Some areas of the city are lucky and already have superfast broadband, but we need them to still sign the petition to help other areas of the city to get access. Everyone in Peterborough needs to make this happen, so please ask family, friends, neighbours and colleagues to register their support too.
