At present we have an EXTREMELY LIMITED broadband service in our area.

Our children & grandchildren are struggling to get a reasonable internet connection to partake in their daily schooling for the past year. Their teachers are also having great difficulty getting the lessons online for their pupils. This is affecting their parents too.

People working from home have been driving out to various places chasing a decent internet Connection' others have been trying to do their work during night hours when less people are using the internet.

In our community, peoples of all faiths are unable to keep in touch with Church Services, in particular, with only limited numbers allowed in Churches, relatives, are not able to view family weddings/funerals.

Groups within our community, who are trying to meet and stay in contact with their members via zoom, are struggling with poor internet services. People have been isolating and these groups are a lifeline to them.

Farmers and businesses need the internet for their survival...banking online, record keeping, form filling, taxing vehicles etc. Ironically we are encouraged to complete all government paper work online.....

To wait for a further 2 year for broadband is unacceptable, this is effecting the mental health of parents, teachers, farmers, elderly people.

The LACK OF DECENT BROADBAND SERVICES is affecting everyone in our community.
