The campaign for fast broadband

Broadband speeds in much of Tysoe are painfully slow. To help bring fast broadband it is vital that all Tysoe residents and businesses who use the internet complete the survey and demonstrate the high level of demand.

Details of the survey are in the letter from Tysoe’s broadband champions, Alison Cross and Craig Marshall.
