I welcome the news from Ofcom that more consumers in Inverclyde are receiving faster broadband speeds. The quality of the product being provided is continuing to improve and I look forward to further developments.
This year’s report outlines progress on the availability and take-up of broadband and mobile services, which are crucial to people’s personal and working lives. The average download speed in Inverclyde has increased to 62.1(Mbit/s) from a previous 52.3 (Mb/s). The combined superfast and ultra-fast broadband availability in Inverclyde is now 93% from a previous 86.3%
This comes on the welcome announcement during the Scottish Budget that every home and business will have access to superfast broadband by 2021, as a result of a £600 million investment.
