Shropshire broadband action called for
Campaigners are calling for poor quality broadband services in Shropshire to be addressed.The latest UK broadband speed tables have proven difficult reading for the people of Shropshire, with the county performing poorly in terms of superfast coverage to date.
Figures published by Thinkbroadband revealed that less than half of all connections across the county are capable of delivering broadband speeds of 30 Mbps or above, with the constituencies of Ludlow, Montgomery and Brecon and Radnorshire all ranking in more than 600th place for broadband access.
Patrick Cosgrove, representative for Shropshire and Marches Campaign for Better Broadband, told the Shropshire Star: "Just as Shropshire Council gears up to contract for the second phase of broadband rollout, we learn only 44.1 per cent of south Shropshire homes and businesses are able to access high speed broadband."
This, he claimed, highlights the need for further investment in the county and for significant improvements to be delivered in the near future to help Shropshire residents benefit during what is now a broadband revolution for the whole of the UK.
