City survey on broadband
LONDONDERRY could share in a £50m funding roll-out to bolster broadband services and improve connectivity for residents, businesses and tourists.
Local businesses and residents are being urged to have their say on the Londonderry Super-Connected City Plan, by taking part in a special survey to establish broadband demands throughout the city.
Town Clerk and Chief Executive of the Council, Sharon O’Connor, explained that the on-line survey will demonstrate the level of demand in the city for super fast broadband.
“The Council is currently working closely with the Department of Culture, Media and Sport and other stakeholders on the Derry Super-Connected City Plan, which must be submitted by September 17,” she explained. “However, broadband improvements will only happen and be sustainable if there is clear demand.
“I would encourage all local broadband users, residents and businesses, to go on line and complete the quick survey, to help us in our bid to establish the best telecommunications infrastructure for Derry, building on our reputation as a city offering the very latest advances in communications technologies.”
The survey is now available on-line, and only takes a few minutes to complete, so broadband users can quickly and easily register their views on local broadband provision, just go to www.derrycity.gov.uk/superconnectedderry.
