Alan welcomes Digital Rutland launch

On Wednesday 16th May, Alan took part via video link in the official signing ceremony of the Digital Rutland project at Oakham Castle.

Watching the event from his office in the Houses of Parliament, Alan was able to witness the signing of the scheme and speak to the assembled guests.

Speaking via webcam, Alan said: 'We want to see more businesses in Rutland and we can’t do it without higher bandwidth. We want to see more education opportunities open up but without fast broadband we are held back.”
