Aberdeen South broadband problems highlighted in Parliament

Also in Friday’s Department of Culture Media and Sport questions, Dame Anne quizzed Edward Vaizey (Under-Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport) over broadband provisions for Aberdeen South:

“Many of my constituents cannot even get moderately fast broadband. They are therefore desperate for the introduction of superfast broadband, but 2015 is too far away. Aberdeen will be bidding to become one of the superfast cities. Can the Secretary of State give us an assurance that the criteria will include not only ease of installation and density of population but factors such as the industries that will depend on having superfast broadband? Aberdeen is an important economic driver in the north-east of Scotland.”
