Worcestershire businesses suffer with slow broadband header image

The internet is an increasingly important part of the business world and having to cope with slow and unreliable connections can severely hinder a company's performance. 

It appears this is the case in Worcestershire, where local firms have lodged a large number of complaints about the issue with the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB). 

FSB chairman for the region Ken Wigfield told Worcester News: "Over the last few years it’s fair to say we've been bombarded with complaints over this."

He cited a local businessman who was forced to drive to a friend's house each day just to use a reliable internet connection as an example of the problems poor broadband can cause.

Mr Wigfield added that the benefits reported by those firms who do have access to super-fast services makes the problem even more apparent.

"We've already had businesses leave or refuse to join Worcestershire due to a lack of super-fast broadband speeds," he told the newspaper. 

If your business is suffering with a poor connection, you could benefit from switching to Avonline.
