Motion text

That this House congratulates Lothian Broadband Networks Limited (LBNL), a limited company of Humbie, East Lothian, with the aim of enabling local communities to access super-fast internet coverage, on winning the UK-wide 2015 Next Generation Digital Challenge Award for Rural Networks category, for their innovative hybrid Fibre/Wireless designs; further congratulates LBNL for winning the Rural Innovators award for Communications from the Scottish Rural Parliament; and notes that these two awards are highly regarded in the telecoms industry and are clear recognition of the commitment and technical expertise of the staff at LBNL, and proof that a local approach can often provide alternative solutions where the large telecoms companies have failed to provide a service.
