A campaigner in the Midlands has emphasised the importance of high-speed broadband.

Glyn Pitchford, elected West Midlands Business Council Business Representative on the City Region board, believes that firms of any size should utilise a fast internet connection.

As reported by the Birmingham Post, super-fast broadband and good communications are just as important to firms in the region as easy market access and reliable staff members.

He stressed the importance of informing businesses of the availability of broadband and what it can help them achieve.

Mr Pitchford told the newspaper: "All this is vital for the economy of the West Midlands - it is about at least keeping up with the other regions of the UK.

"If we can educate business about the applications available - how best they can utilise the extra speed - then I believe they will be keen to grab the benefits."
