4. Boosting connectivity

Many people in rural Stirling have trouble with slow, ineffective broadband. This makes it difficult to work and live in rural areas, which in turn puts a stopper on growth in these areas.

Together with Minister Matt Hancock, I am working to spread faster broadband speeds across Stirling. I have also met with providers EE, BT, and Briskona, so I knows exactly what needs to be worked on in order to give people in rural areas superfast broadband.

Likewise, 4G is slow or non-existent for many people living in rural areas.
