Campaigning for fast Broadband in Milton Keynes
Until September 2004 parts of Milton Keynes had no broadband internet access. Coverage was particularly poor across a broad swathe from Shenley Lodge and Loughton in the west, through Great Linford in the north, Willen, Middleton in the east, and down to Old Farm Park in the south.

Thanks to the campaigning of MK BAG, the majority of people in MK can now get broadband and even fibre based broadband. There are still "not spots" around MK where people struggle to get ADSL broadband and the current aims of the group are to ensure everyone can access broadband - and to get the maximum speeds possible through a variety of technologies and techniques.
