A PACKED MEETING in Hedon last night confirmed residents’ intention to get MS3 poles removed from Hedon and Preston streets. And to set up countywide and countrywide organisations to tackle unnecessary telegraph pole deployment nationwide.
The response from the Going Underground has always been, from day one, that leading people into criminal activity is fundamentally wrong and would be counter-productive.
As the core group of campaigners can’t support all of these streets, we must implore each street to make their own arrangements to protect themselves from the legalised vandalism of MS3.
CAMPAIGNERS have expressed concern that MS3 Networks has been given the green light by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) to continue forcing through its telegraph pole installation on the streets of Hedon and Preston.
WHILST MS3 NETWORKS is supported by multi-million-pounds of investment by Asterion Investment Partners, the Going Underground campaign is supported by the activity of local residents. And this includes on the funding front.
AS THE FORCED ROLLOUT of unpopular telegraph poles in Hedon and Preston continues, local campaigners have embarked on a national campaign.
GRAHAM STUART MP’s Street Surgery yesterday became an opportunity for residents and campaigners to raise concerns about the rollout of MS3 telegraph poles.
EAST RIDING LIBERAL DEMOCRATS are calling on Ofcom to intervene in the row over telegraph poles, by holding an emergency Market Review in the Hull Telecoms Area, combined with a pause in build activity.
The Going Underground campaign is only six weeks old today (born out of the September 7th protest), and there is a long way yet to go!
The fight against the pole-planting companies – the unregulated network providers who don’t actually deliver broadband to anyone – is going national.
