Rural MP highlights broadband problem
CRIANLARICH and Tyndrum MP, Steven Paterson, called on UK Government ministers to reconsider support for the roll- out of super-fast broadband.
In a speech to the House of Commons during a member’s business debate on Super-Fast Broadband on Monday, October 12, Mr. Paterson used the opportunity to highlight the increasing need for a reliable broadband connection - especially for businesses, fighting to compete in a modern trading arena.
Commenting on the debate, Steven Paterson said: ‘I saw this as an important opportunity to hold the UK Government to account on their to- date handling of the super-fast broadband roll- out. It is simply not good enough that only 57 percent of the Stirling constituency enjoys the benefits of up-todate broadband services.’
