On 13 February, Kevan attended the official launch of Sacriston’s superfast broadband at the Fulforth Centre. The event was hosted by Digital Durham.

Kevan said, “It’s great that Sacriston and many other parts of my constituency are now befitting from the Digital Durham fibre roll-out – and it’s wonderful to have some of the local school children here to help celebrate today’s technological milestone.

“Fibre broadband will be a big plus for homework as well as all the other things families like to do online. More than that, it’s an investment in the future – for these children, local businesses and the long-term economic prosperity of the whole community.”
