That this House notes the existence of broadband blackspots, where customers cannot be connected to the broadband network; further notes that a number of telecoms and broadband suppliers in the UK including BT have access to detailed information on the location and extent of these areas; believes that it would benefit all companies in the sector and the country as a whole if this information was shared; further believes that sharing would help integrate cable with other technologies such as satellite; and encourages all companies to begin sharing information on broadband blackspots to help strengthen our national infrastructure.
