A pilot scheme aimed at improving broadband provision in the wider Crumlin area has been welcomed by Sinn Féin Councillor for South Antrim, Anne Marie Logue.

Councillor Logue said: “Following a survey it was found that the South Antrim, Ballyclare and Crumlin areas fared worst in terms of broadband access.

“There is a real demand to see broadband provision in the Crumlin area improved, which Sinn Féin have continued to highlight.

“As a result Crumlin has been selected for a pilot scheme as Trial Broadband Access Point.

“Essentially anyone with concerns about their broadband provision can call into the Crumlin Leisure Centre on Thursday, December 17 for advice and to see how Avanti, the groups chosen for this project by DETI, can help them.

“In the 21st century a suitable level of broadband provision is a must in terms of developing communities, business and infrastructure. This is a welcome pilot scheme but I would urge the minister to continue to look at how broadband provision can be accelerated in South Antrim.”
