Tynemouth MP Alan Campbell has welcomed the launch of a new mobile and broadband checker, available both as an online tool and as an app. The Ofcom Mobile and Broadband Checker is a one-stop shop which will show you your broadband and mobile coverage, test your connections and suggest tips for improving performance.

 

The App shows voice, 3G or 4G coverage from all major network operators, both indoors and outdoors, at any location in the UK – allowing people to compare which network offers the best service in places such as the home or office. Broadband availability and speed information is available using address-level data for the first time.

 

The app is free to download and available for both Apple and Android devices. It is also available as a web based version for desktop and laptop devices, which you can access at;

https://checker.ofcom.org.uk/

 

Alan Campbell MP said “It is concerning that 1.4 million homes and offices remain unable to sign up for broadband speeds over 10 Mbit/s, the speed required to meet a typical household’s digital needs.  Here in Tynemouth we have good coverage but for places like West Allotment upgrades still need to happen.  I am continuing to lobby to ensure that we get to 100%.

Alan Campbell MP for Tynemouth has responded to the Government’s announcement of the closure of Whitley Bay Jobcentre.  The MP said;

 

“It's reckless at best and perverse at worst for the Government to close so many Jobcentres.

 

Claimants from places like Whitley Bay will be forced to travel further to sign on and in many cases will incur increased travel costs that DWP will not reimburse. Living on benefits, these are costs they cannot and should not have to afford and risks harsh sanctions if people are unable to keep appointments..

 

This Tory Government’s decision to close Jobcentres across the country shows they are not serious about helping people to find decent, secure and well-paid work”.

This week Alan signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment, in doing so pledging his commitment to Holocaust Memorial Day and honouring those who were murdered during the Holocaust as well as paying tribute to the extraordinary Holocaust survivors who work tirelessly to educate young people.

Friday 27th January marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of the largest mass murder in history.

In the lead up to and on Holocaust Memorial Day, thousands of commemorative events will be arranged by schools, faith groups and community organisations across the country, remembering all the victims of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides. The theme for this year’s commemorations is ‘How can life go on?’

After signing the Book of Commitment Alan Campbell MP commented:

“Holocaust Memorial Day is an important opportunity for people from Tynemouth and across the country to reflect on the tragic events of the Holocaust. As the Holocaust moves from living history, to just history, it becomes ever more important that we take the time to remember the victims and also pay tribute to the survivors. I would encourage my constituents to show their support for such an important day.”
