NFU Online

Broadband and Mobile

The NFU is unique in surveying more than 800 members to show the true picture of broadband and mobile coverage for farmers.

Last year's survey results showed that only 6% of respondents had superfast broadband speeds and 15% mobile coverage across their farm in 2016.

We've summarised the results in a two-page document and have provided examples of how farmers can help increase productivity if they can get connected.

The UK is the only country in Europe not committed to superfast coverage for farmers and rural communities. The NFU is calling on the government to put a comprehensive plan in place.
