Broadband: A Neccesity, not a Luxury!

David has campaigned tirelessly for faster broadband speeds and better mobile coverage across Banff and Buchan, repeatedly arguing that the SNP government, who are responsible for the broadband roll out in Scotland, has failed communities here where 12.62% still experience download speeds of less than 10Mbps.

 

David says 'There are too many people still without a decent broadband connection and in this day and age a decent internet connection is a necessity, not a luxury. This is why I welcome the move by the UK Government to create a universal service obligation of a minimum of 10Mbps.'
