Thursday, May 27th 2010

The country's leading broadband providers and the new government are set to meet to discuss issues related to broadband connections in rural areas, say recent reports. The providers and MPs will talk about ways to improve improve the quality of web connections in rural areas, apart from other issues. Caroline Spelman, the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in David Cameron's coalition cabinet spoke to the Yorkshire Post on this regard.

The minister made reference to a report by the Rural Advocate, according to which many youngsters are deserting the rural areas due to improper broadband facilities and other problems. “We know too, this hampers the work of farmers in many areas and isolates many other groups” she said, adding that, “So we will prioritise the roll-out of UK broadband to rural neighbourhoods, bringing everyone the same benefits and opportunities of digital technology which so many of us already enjoy.”

Newly appointed broadband minister Ed Vaizey was recently approached by The Federation of Small Businesses to see to it that all UK firms have access to high quality connections.
