The availability of fast and reliable broadband is becoming more and more important in daily life – for learning, work and leisure. Connectivity however is varied across East Lothian and many rural and remote areas of the county are unlikely to benefit significantly from existing roll out plans for Superfast Broadband in the area.
To help ensure that people living in rural areas across East Lothian do not miss out on the opportunities offered by Superfast Broadband, Area Partnerships are working with Community Broadband Scotland to develop a project that will deliver access to effective broadband to rural and remote communities.
The next step in this project is to be able to prove that a significant number of people in these areas really want and need Superfast Broadband. It is hoped to do this through the Improving Broadband Connectivity Survey. The survey is available here
Please take a few minutes to complete the survey.
Printed paper copies can be provided if people prefer.
The survey closes on the 20th Feb. 2015.
