Gibson welcomes internet initiative

News release
Immediate release


Highlands and Islands SNP MSP Has welcomed a initiative by Highlands and Islands Enterprise which allows people in Caithness who have never had the chance to use the internet to discover what it can do.

Mr Gibson said...

"This citizen online project will help introduce the internet to those who might not have the chance to use it. The more people who are computer literate and internet enabled the better"

"However BT and HIE has to do more to help increase internet speed across the County as well as the Highlands and Islands. In a recent survey carried out by my office it became clear that there was a large disparities in internet speed across the region which is hampering business and communications.

"BT has to enable as many telephone exchanges as possible to meet internet demand and strengthen the network so that those who are introduced to broadband can gain access in their turn."
