Broadband survey: Exmoor Young Voices

A Plea from Exmoor Young Voices to residents of West Somerset: May 2020

Its 2020, we’re in the middle of a global pandemic, and we don’t know about you but we’d really struggle without the Internet right now! Times like these prove the importance of digital connectivity – not only for educational and work purposes but also for maintaining personal relationships and improving general well-being.

Unfortunately, not everyone in West Somerset has access to good broadband. Those of us out in the sticks are constantly battling a bad connection and then there are the increasing prices of broadband packages to contend with.

As an organisation, Exmoor Young Voices are keen to tackle the lack of digital connectivity, as part of their goal to prioritise young people on Exmoor. To do this, they need your help.

They need to know if the lack of digital connectivity is impacting your lives. Has it hindered your ability to access educational or work material during the pandemic? Does it make working-from-home out of the question?

Answer a quick 1 minute survey.

At this time, they are keen to hear from ALL RESIDENTS of West Somerset, not just Exmoor. Your answers will assist them to find ways (and potential funding opportunities) to improve digital connectivity in this part of the county.
