Fibre Broadband Needed on the Pastures Development in Wesham

We, the undersigned, petition the county council to work in partnership with external organisations to improve the horrendous speeds of connection to basic broadband services. We ask that as part of Superfast Lancashire the development of 235 plots be considered for an upgrade of infrastructure enabling families and local businesses working from home be able to thrive in the area.

In 2020, access to the internet should not be based upon your postcode. Unfortunately if you live on the Pastures Development in Wesham a good stable connect is a luxury not a right. In 2020 lack of access to the basic internet has Health and Wellbeing consequences as well with residents mentioning the stress, anxiety and emotional impact of not being able to connect with loved ones and work from home.

In 2020 access to the internet should not be a privilege but a right.

This ePetition runs from 14/07/2020 to 25/08/2020.
