Broadband not good in rural areas

Auckland Council’s registration of interest to central government in support of improved broadband coverage will be reinforced by nearly 300 pieces of feedback from rural communities across the region.
Councillor Linda Cooper, a member of council’s Rural Broadband Political Working Party, says that the feedback overwhelmingly reflects community concerns over poor broadband quality in rural areas, which is generally slow and unreliable.
“It’s disappointing that in a digital age, people are still experiencing poor quality broadband, holding back economic, health, education and social development opportunities in rural communities,” said Councillor Cooper.
Feedback came from communities in Franklin, Rodney, Waiheke, Great Barrier, and Waitakere Ranges local board areas.
