Ru­ral Scot­land needs bet­ter broad­band now

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, Steven Pater­son MP is right to high­light the im­por­tance of bring­ing su­per­fast broad­band to ru­ral ar­eas.

I raised this many times when I was an MP. How­ever, it’s not just the UK gov­ern­ment that Mr Pater­son should be crit­i­cis­ing.

In Scot­land, the SNP gov­ern­ment is re­spon­si­ble for fund­ing the roll- out and it is pro­ceed­ing painfully slowly. This roll- out must be speeded up. Ru­ral Scot­land can’t wait any longer for this vi­tal ser­vice. Alan Reid, Lib Dem can­di­date for

Ar­gyll and Bute, Dunoon.
