Stevenson Steps Up Pressure on Minister for Boyndie Broadband

Local SNP MSP Stewart Stevenson has written to Enterprise Minister Nicol Stephen calling for Boyndie to be broadband enabled.

The move follows the Minister’s statement last week, under questioning from SNP MSP John Swinney, that further work will be done to identify areas able to receive support to expand broadband availability.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“Boyndie is a classic example of a community that is best-placed to take advantage of broadband facilities as a boost to commerce, communication and education in the area – especially since the Boyndie Centre has achieved SQA status. Many of these courses, including those to aid adult literacy, are internet-based and require broadband for optimum performance.

“I am informed that several local households have already been sold broadband packages by BT – which will be unusable until such time as they can actually get a broadband connection.

“I have written to the Minister putting the case for Boyndie and I hope that this announcement will also see other communities in my constituency benefit as well.”
