Show support for superfast broadband
CITY people have been urged to "show a demand" for superfast broadband to ensure Plymouth gets the fastest internet connection possible.
Council leader Tudor Evans spoke out after a report showed 88 per cent of city premises are now covered.
Although that is above the national average, city business leaders have long been pushing for better connections, saying improved speed would boost the economy and enterprise.
The report, put before Plymouth City Council's overview and scrutiny panel, stressed the need for continued investment to stay ahead of the game.

"The best way the city can influence when we receive upgrades is to show demand for broadband," Cllr Evans said.
"We're already very well connected, and this bears out much hard work in the city.
"But you can never rest easy when it comes to technology.
"We need everyone to help show that we are a forward-thinking city that needs the latest, fastest and best technology."
