Suffolk Broadband Campaing - Provide Vital Ammunition - rural businesses are urged
Rural businesses in Suffolk are urged by CLA East to supply vital ammunition to the county's broadband campaign to illustrate the demand for a fast, efficient service and help gain government support.
Better Broadband for Suffolk has launched a survey designed to demonstrate to government the level of support it has from industry and businesses are asked to participate before the end of November.
"The campaign wants to get as many businesses as possible to complete the survey," explains Nicola Currie, regional director CLA East, which is a campaign member. "Along with all the other business organisations we are contacting our members in Suffolk in order to swell numbers so that we can show the government the level of demand and strengthen our case.
"The survey is simple and easy to do, so won't involve a lot of arduous work."
The survey, along with background information and monthly newsletters can be found at www.suffolk.gov.uk/broadband For a hard copy of the survey contact Jonathan Chown, Project Manager, Suffolk Better Broadband Programme 01473 265211 or 07515 187818
CLA research shows that high speed broadband is essential not only for business but for education and re-training as well as helping communities and, in the future, providing better healthcare. Rural house prices and the ability to let rural office space are directly affected by broadband speeds.

As a membership organisation, the CLA (Country Land and Business Association) supports landowners and rural businesses and communities, assessing and commenting upon national and regional policy and lobbying government on their behalf. There is a team of experts in London and a regional structure able to give local support. The CLA has been looking after the interests of its members, as well as promoting the positive aspects of land ownership and land management, for over 100 years.
CLA members own approximately half the rural land in England and Wales, and the resulting expertise puts the organisation in a unique position to formulate policies and lobby effectively.
