Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has encouraged people with weak broadband speeds to respond to a public consultation launched by the Department of the Economy.

Speaking after meeting senior officials from the Department, the East Derry MLA commented:

“Many rural areas are disadvantaged in terms of access to high speed broadband.

“It’s a reality that poor broadband has a real impact on the lives of people in rural communities, who can’t work or study from home, and can’t access basic public services or shop online.

“Sinn Féin have been consistently calling for this inequality to be addressed and for future investment to prioritise rural areas.

“It’s welcome that the Department of the Economy have launched a public consultation on ‘Project Sratum’ in an attempt to deliver better broadband to people in areas with poor coverage.

“If your home can’t reach download speeds of at least 30Mbps – I would encourage people to respond to this consultation by email at [email protected], by phone 02890529352 or online – www.nidirect.gov.uk/services/check-your-postcodes-listed-broadband-improvement.”
