Rural internet connectivity – the reality

Just before the complete Coronavirus lockdown, Meridian ITV News visited Cranbrook to find out more about how poor internet connection is hampering rural business, as people began to work from home and become more reliant on secure internet and video communication.

Buzz Packer Sarah Maxwell said that she lost 25% of her online fitness class due to poor internet.

Business users and Buzz Packers at The Hive began taking advantage of the secure 100mb internet connection, reporting that even making bank transactions on their home internet was proving impossible.
