Nottinghamshire County Council is urging people to support its campaign to get faster broadband out to several areas in the county with bad signal, such as Brinsley.
People are being urged to sign a pledge online, which will be used as proof to telecoms companies that faster broadband is needed in several areas including Brinsley, Selston and Underwood.
One in five Nottinghamshire homes and businesses - more than 116,000 properties - are still languishing behind with slow, or no broadband at all.
Th project would cost £17m.
