McTaggart Condems Flat-lining Scottish Broadband Figures

Glasgow Labour MSP Anne McTaggart has condemned figures released in a recent Ofcom report which show that Broadband take up in Scotland has flat-lined since 2009.

The same report also indicates that Glasgow is suffering from below the national average in terms of Broadband take up.

Anne McTaggart MSP said:

“Ofcom’s recent report highlights worrying statistics and shows that for over two years Broadband take up in Scotland hasn’t increased. 

What is more worrying is that in Scotland’s largest city the figure is below that stationary figure. 

It was also a real concern to note that only 34% of Scottish over 55s have taken broadband which is 21% lower than the rest of the UK average. 

Older people in our communities should be supported to have broadband access as we look to limit any isolation that they may face.”
