Do we need to get together and request faster broadband connections?

FASTER broadband connections will not be automatically rolled out to isolated rural areas, the government has confirmed.  Instead, rural homes and businesses will have to request connections – a process which could involve a four-year wait.

Route 60+ is one of our most popular presentations and is run for older drivers.
