Farmers demand free broadband access


by David Allen

The government’s plan to allow people to fill in important forms online has been a reasonable success.

But as this method of form filling spreads to other departments, it is causing problems for some people, in particular those people who live in rural areas where the access to broadband is limited or non existent.

The Farmers’ Union of Wales are claiming that these farmers are being told that they have to fill in certain forms online, but the NFU is saying that if this is the preferred method of working then they should be getting free broadband access.

However the eGov projects that are being rolled out across Europe are to help farmers and rural businesses research what is available to them personally and they can then easily apply online.

Otherwise the alternative would mean visiting government offices, which takes time.
