BROADBAND providers will have the chance to speak to residents over poor connectivity.

People throughout Fareham have been invited to a meeting so they can speak directly to service providers about the daily problems they face.

Nick Inman from Whiteley said: ‘How can a modern housing estate like Whiteley, right next to a hi-tech business park, be so far behind on broadband infrastructure, capacity and technology, making it impossible to do anything on IT beyond the basics.

‘When our broadband is working we normally get 1 to 4 MBs which is hardly usable for much more than email.

‘Openreach’s monopoly and poor service needs to end now.’

Fareham MP Suella Fernandes organised the meeting which is taking place on November 3 at Titchfield Community Centre from 6pm.

Suella said: ‘This will be a good opportunity to get some answers over the dreadfully poor and unacceptable connectivity quality in areas of Fareham.’
