The plight of farming communities left without adequate broadband services could be helped by the Country Land and Business Association (CLA).

Representing the interests of many rural residents, the organisation has taken it upon itself to compile a list of areas known to be broadband black-spots.

Despite claims that over 99 per cent of the population now have access to broadband services, head of rural business development, Dr Charles Trotman, says that a steady stream of CLA members issue complaints regarding broadband services.

He commented: "The CLA still receives inquiries from members frustrated they cannot take advantage of these services because they live in remote rural areas."

After gathering information on the location still without the availability of feasible broadband services, the CLA will then take up the matter with BT.

It is asking those in deprived areas to name the main reason they require a broadband connection.
