Rural areas in Scotland are being overlooked in favour of urban areas when it comes to broadband development, an MP has suggested.

David Mundell, who represents Dumfriesshire in the House of Commons, has told the Dumfries and Galloway Standard that it is not fair for cities such as Glasgow and Edinburgh to get prioritised ahead of locations in the countryside.

He told the newspaper: "I am regularly contacted by residents across my constituency who are unable to get broadband, let alone at a super-fast speed.

"It is disappointing that more is not being done to help those who cannot access broadband which is essential in this day and age."

BT recently announced the first areas which will benefit from its super-fast broadband network, set to reach speeds of up to 60Mb.
