Slow Rural Broadband Affecting Education Says New Report

According to research carried out by insurance firm NFU Mutual, many families believe that slow Internet connections are leaving their children at a disadvantage against those in urban areas, who have access to much faster broadband speeds.

The survey claims that rural households are less likely to have superfast broadband, with 22 percent of respondents in rural areas having access compared to 32 percent in urban areas, while they are half as likely to use mobile broadband through 3G and 4G connections – however it is worth noting that more than four times as many rural households than urban households were questioned.
