This petition is a crucial element of my campaign to improve mobile telephone signal in South Suffolk.
Under the current Mobile Infrastructure Project (MIP), the government made funds available to improve mobile telephone infrastructure in the worst affected areas of the country. South Suffolk had a number of sites identified as requiring better infrastructure and has subsequently received funding for a new mast in the Bildeston area.
Whilst I welcome this development, there is still more to be done and the current round of MIP is finishing at the end of March this year.
By signing this petition, you will be joining me in placing pressure on the Government to extend a new round of funding for the MIP and highlighting the necessity for improved mobile telephone signal in our area.
I will present this petition to Government early in March in advance of the Chancellor’s Budget on Wednesday 16th March 2016.
I appreciate your support and hope that together we can demonstrate the extensive need for mobile infrastructure improvement that still exists in our constituency.
