Businesses in Yorkshire currently unable to enjoy the benefits of broadband services have been urged to speak out by the Country Land & Business Association (CLA).

The organisation initially called for local residents without access to ADSL broadband to contact it.

Now the CLA has made a plea to firms within the one per cent of British addresses said by BT to be unable to make use of broadband internet services.

"As usual it's the rural population who are missing out and this is wholly unacceptable," protested CLA Yorkshire regional director Dorothy Fairburn, speaking to the Yorkshire Dales News.

She went on: "If rural businesses would like access to affordable broadband but understand it is not available in their area, please contact our regional office with your details."

Earlier in the month, the CLA came out in support of the extension of the universal service obligation to broadband services, which is rumoured to be a suggestion made by Lord Carter in his upcoming Digital Britain report.
