A Scottish politician is encouraging broadband customers in Angus and Perthshire to flag up any issues they have with broadband access.

Murdo Fraser, MSP for Mid-Scotland and Fife, is not convinced that every consumer and business in the region that wants broadband has access to a service, the Courier reports.

He asserted that while the Scottish government believes those that want to be are "broadband-enabled", many are still unable to connect or have an insufficient service.

According to the newspaper, Mr Fraser has brought the problem to the attention of Enterprise Minister Jim Mather.

Consequently, he has called on consumers and companies to get in touch with him and let him know if they are experiencing issues.

He has also urged the Scottish government to continue working on its plans for universal broadband coverage.

Mr Fraser said: "Rural areas like highland Perthshire and the Angus glens need broadband just as much as Scotland's cities do and that is why I will continue to put pressure on this SNP Government until the whole of Tayside, including all of the Angus glens and highland Perthshire, is broadband-enabled."
