Adam Afriyie (Windsor, Conservative): 3. What steps she is taking to improve broadband speeds in rural areas.

Matt Hancock (Minister of State for Digital): As we have heard, superfast broadband is now available to more than 94% of premises. In 2010, only 42.5% of homes in Windsor had superfast broadband access. Today, that number is just shy of 94%.
