A couple of points to note:- • Some of these postcodes will only have partial access to superfast broadband, although all will have at least some access to a broadband service of at least 24Mbps. • More postcodes in the Stafford constituency will be reached by the programme in future stages of the rollout. This information will be published when it is known. You can check the availability of superfast broadband services at http://gosuperfastchecker.culture.gov.uk/ from where you will be directed to available superfast broadband providers and for those who cannot currently get superfast broadband, some providers provide a demand registration service where you can register your interest.
