Bridport and its surrounding area faces a longer wait for superfast broadband access than other towns in Dorset.
And that is forcing local businesswoman Nichola Ross Martin to relocate.
Her tax consultancy firm, which includes five commercial websites, relies upon a strong internet connection to remain competitive.
Now she is urging residents and businesses to express their interest in superfast broadband in order to speed up the process.
Nichola, whose business is located in Uploders, was shocked to find that moving to Bridport would still leave her waiting another three years to access the more efficient superfast broadband, now in use across much of Britain.
