FOLLOWING on from the response to its request to hear from individual country dwellers, the Country Land & Business Association (CLA) now wants to hear from rural businesses in Yorkshire that cannot yet obtain BT’s standard ADSL broadband service.
If rural businesses would like access to affordable broadband but understand it is not available in their area, please contact our regional office with your details
Dorothy Fairburn - CLA Yorkshire
Dorothy Fairburn, CLA Yorkshire Regional Director, said: “There are still many rural businesses that cannot take advantage of broadband internet services, despite the fact that BT claims its ADSL broadband now reaches 99 percent of homes and businesses. As usual it’s the rural population who are missing out and this is wholly unacceptable.
“If rural businesses would like access to affordable broadband but understand it is not available in their area, please contact our regional office with your details.”
Miss Fairburn added: “Once armed with this information the CLA will do everything in its power, in current talks with BT, to identify the last remaining pockets of broadband unavailability in the region to gauge demand and provide solutions.”
