Residents in rural locations around the city of Huddersfield are the latest countryside community to say 'enough is enough' when it comes to unreliable broadband.
Some villagers quizzed by the Denby Dale Parish Council as part of a review into broadband services in the area reported serious difficulties with their slow connections.
Speaking to the Huddersfield Daily Examiner, one broadband user reported it took them half an hour to log on to the BBC homepage.
While another complained to the publication: "I got Broadband through BT about a year ago I have a connection for a few days, it then goes off for days and comes back on for a few days and just recently it has been off for over two weeks now.
"I have tried unplugging all the connections and re-plugging as suggested I am now getting really frustrated and annoyed."
Various locations in nearby South Yorkshire recently joined together to launch the Digital Region project, which will see homes and businesses in Doncaster and Sheffield receive next-generation broadband services.
