Demanding Better Rural Broadband
Mr Simon Hamilton MLA
Economy Minister, NI Assembly
Mr Alex Crossan
BT Networks Director – Ireland
Dear Mr Hamilton MLA & Mr Crossan,
We write as residents of a rural community with little or no access to Broadband.
We live in an era which means we need access to Quality, High Speed Broadband as part of our daily lives. Children can’t do homework, we online shopping is difficult, small businesses struggle to communicate with customers, farmers cannot complete forms online and to try and access services such as Netflix or Now TV are not an option for us.
We demand access to high quality broadband just like those Tax Payers and Rate Payers in places like Belfast. We struggle to access the very basic of services from any government department.
On a daily basis we see the BT Superfast Broadband van in our area, we see green cabinets in our area with ‘Superfast Broadband Available in Your Area’ and yet we still cannot get access to Broadband. No one can tell us if and when we will get services.
We are demanding fair and equal access to high-speed broadband.
