A campaign has been launched by residents in South Oxfordshire to secure faster broadband speeds so they can have easier access to the internet.

Villagers in Ewelme claim local businesses and students have been affected by slow connections.

BT said an upgrade was due by 2015 but villagers want it to happen earlier.

Neil Blake, campaigner, said: "If you haven't got broadband of a reasonable capacity you can't run a business here."
