Dear MP

I write to you as one of the many small to medium business owners in the UK who are experiencing significant difficulties in accessing affordable, efficient, high-speed and cost-conscious access to the internet, via broadband services.

As a supporter of the ‘Broadband4Britain’ campaign, recently launched, I find myself concerned, frustrated and appalled enough to take action and join the increasing number of supporters who want to change the current state of play of the broadband access market.

Many businesses owners like myself require access to highspeed xDSL and leased line services to the internet in the UK, but we are continually being fobbed off by the likes of large service providers such as BT. We are not looking to hold video conferences over the internet just yet or download complex programmes and services, but as businesses that rely on efficient, reliable and consistent communication, we simply need regular access to the world wide web, to be both available and affordable.

The cost of broadband services is on the increase and yet the ongoing development of both access points and available services seems to have slowed down. As a result, UK SMEs who rely on fast, efficient communication via reliable channels are suffering. Some of the SMEs affected are in remote locations, but many are based in the vicinity of large cities with the appropriate transmitters that should make the deployment of broadband a ‘no-brainer’.

So why are we suffering and being made to accept second rate services when many of our global partners are enjoying the benefits of the latest in broadband connection and speed?

The SME sector makes up the largest section of businesses in the UK, and as a nation can lay claim to the development of some of the most revolutionary technological advances in the world. So why are we continually being ignored when it comes to broadband service allocation and why are we not leading the way with the deployment of this efficient method of accessing the world and its markets?

I look forward to your response to this call for action.

Yours faithfully,
