PARISH councillors are calling for residents concerned about broadband speeds to complete their survey.
Bickenhill and Marston Green Parish Council has launched the survey amid issues over a ‘digital disparity’ in the villages.
The council said: “Access to good broadband connectivity is becoming increasingly important in peoples’ lives for work, study, leisure, recreation or simply keeping in touch with friends and family.
“At present, connectivity greatly varies across the parish. As a result, some residents are finding it difficult to take advantage of digital technology due to slow speed or simply having no available internet connection.
“The council is currently looking at ways how better services can be delivered to these affected areas.
“The first step is to prove that there is demand in these areas for superfast broadband.”
According to Ofcom research, businesses around Bickenhill and the NEC enjoy some of the fastest broadband speeds in the Birmingham area, but residents just over a mile away in Land Lane and Elm Farm suffer some of the slowest download speeds.
