Dr Lisa Cameron supports the Consumers Association Which? campaign for better internet speeds.
Research by Which? shows that the bottom 25th percent of East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow are receiving broadband speeds of 4.5Mbps.
10Mbps is the proposed minimum speed under the Government’s Universal Obligation (USO) which would see the internet speeds increase across the country.
Which? have launched a new speed checker tool as part of their Fix Bad Broadband campaign to try to combat poor internet speeds.
“Poor broadband is an issue that effects each part of my constituency but is a particular problem in the rural areas.
“I know this is an important topic for a lot of people in East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow and that is why I gave my support to the Which? Campaign to make sure that people are receiving the bandwidth they are paying for.”
