Nanette welcomes broadband announcement

Nanette Milne, 09/12/2010

Conservative North East MSP, Nanette Milne, has welcomed the announcement from the UK Government that every community in the UK will gain access to super-fast broadband by 2015.

Commenting, Nanette Milne MSP said:

“This announcement is a real boost to rural communities and demonstrates the UK Government’s commitment to providing high speed internet to all communities, not just those in the big cities.

“A number of North East communities have struggled with poor broadband speeds, or sometimes no broadband access at all.

“No community, regardless of size or population should have to suffer from low quality internet services – especially when it is such a vital tool for communication and for business. These rural communities will be pleased that, from 2015, they will no longer have to.

“These plans will see a combination of public and private money ensuring that fast broadband is extended into every community in the country.”
