Rural Broadband Problem - What is being done

11 valleys are getting together to sort out the poor internet for themselves. The Borthwick Water Valley is one of them !

We need your help. It takes less than 5 minutes of your time (the irony being "internet permitting").

Here's the long story, shortened.

The Scottish Government have a pool of £40 million to sort out rural broadband issues. It's up to organisations to apply for funding to provide better internet for their communities. We have joined forces with Ettrick and Yarrow, Upper Teviotdale, Tweedsmuir, Moffat Water, Lilliesleaf, Ashkirk & Midlem, Glen, Orchard Mains & Traquair and Eskdalemuir to apply funding to improve our broadband. More Valleys EQUALS bigger (and therefore more attractive) projects for companies to tender for.
