The poor state of broadband on Mull


I live on Loch Scridain, which is lovely but means I’m connected to the Tiroran exchange. It can only supply a broadband speed of 0.5mbps, 1/50th of the UK average and 1/20th of the average from a conventional BT exchange.

I remember when the exchange was upgraded to this limited form of broadband and it seemed wonderful, but now it’s a real inhibition to the normal course of life. We can’t access things others take for granted, such as catch-up TV, Netflix or even the music service on Amazon Prime, and local businesses have to warn residents not to stream things on their phones.
