The NFU has launched the first farmer-focused broadband and mobile phone survey in a bid to get an efficient service rolled out in rural areas.
NFU vice president Guy Smith said it was essential that the business needs and opportunities of the farming sector are understood, especially at a time when farm businesses relied more and more on broadband and mobile phone signals.
“This is a hugely important survey, our member experience will prove invaluable for identifying both the barriers and technological solutions for the delivery of fast, reliable and affordable mobile phone signals and broadband on farm,” said Mr Smith.
“Survey results will be used to promote our work towards ensuring we can see the delivery of fast, reliable and affordable mobile phone signals and broadband for our members.
NFU researchers will be calling its members over the next three weeks to ask for their views.
