2nd December

Busy day at DEFA HQ at St Johns 9.30am start with a variety of subject matter, in particular deciding what the programme will be for the next 9 months with the General Election coming up and what legislation to bring forward.

 

Mid afternoon saw me at the Communication Commission an introduction to their work and the forthcoming Communication Bill which will bring regulation up to date.

It was interesting to note that we are 7th in the world rating with broadband subscriptions per hundred residents and our broadband speeds are 6th in the world, that of course doesn’t help those particularly in Dalby who are not at present benefiting from the VDSL connections.

 

Another interesting statistic, we have more mobile phone subscriptions than we have people on the Island. I did raise the question of mobile phone coverage in the Lhagg Road area of Dalby and also broadband speeds.
