Further to the news of 6th December, Michael Fabricant has just learned that
Abbots Bromley reached the ‘magic’ trigger level of 150 on December 1st for
interest in broadband. Accordingly, the telephone exchange will be enabled
early in 2004. (see graph).
Michael Fabricant says: "A month ago I was told by BT that Abbots Bromley
was too small for broadband provision. I am delighted that the exchange
will now be enabled. A-B suffered badly with foot and mouth disease and
broadband will enable small businesses and people working from home to
diversify and build international customer contacts".
