Arkless Welcomes 4g Upgrades In Four Areas Of D&G

Dumfries and Galloway MP Richard Arkless has welcomed confirmation from the telecoms firm EE that they have been granted planning permission for 4G upgrades at four separate sites across the region.


Improving internet connectivity for Dumfries and Galloway has been a key priority for Mr Arkless since his election and he has successfully worked with various telecoms providers to improve both broadband and 4G services to rural communities.


Commenting, Mr Arkless said:


“EE have been working hard to upgrade 4G coverage throughout the region for some time and I am delighted to hear from them that they now have the planning permission they need to continue this vital work.”


Planning permission has been granted for EE to improve coverage along a section of the A702 south of Moniaive, the A746 and B7052 just north of Sorbie, a section of the A711 south of Beeswing and along the B736, west of Palnackie.


Mr Arkless added:


“The need to improve connectivity across our region cannot be understated – so many current jobs depend good connectivity and countless more potential jobs would come to Dumfries and Galloway if reliable internet connections could be secured.  I am very pleased to hear more positive news from EE and hope that they continue to upgrade the 4G coverage across our region.”
