Broadband in Cumbria from Barry Forde

by admin on December 17, 2010

One of the government’s four pilot schemes is in Cumbria.  I was send the link for the following article written by Barry Forde who is one of the leading thinkers on Next Generation Broadband.

If you read the article, you will see practical examples of what is happening in Cumbria and that the subject is a bit more complicated than simply racing to infinity (and beyond)!  Please comment below if you have any thoughts!

Dear Claire, We are emailing you on bhealf of Cumbria Police and Cumbria County Council, who are using our firm, Public-i, to find out more about how people in the county are using social media. The aim of the research is to help both authorities gain a better understanding of how social media is being used in a civic, community-minded way in the county.As part of this research, we’re contacting the most significant civic’ users of social media we can find in the county and that includes you. We wondered whether you would mind filling out a brief questionnaire for us. We already know that you are doing some really interesting things online to help improve your community, but this will help us to give the police and the county council a much better idea of how they might foster a close, mutually beneficial online relationship with you and other people in the future.We’d very much appreciate if you could take a few minutes to look over the questionnaire, which you’ll find online here:If you’ve got any questions about the research, please contact me, Richard Scales, on 01273 821 282 and I’d be more than happy to help you understand more about the research and its aims.Best wishes and many thanks,Richard
