PROBLEMS with broadband speeds on a Farnworth Street have been taken to Westminster.

A resident contacted Bolton-South East MP Yasmin Qureshi about the issue and she has now written to digital minister Matt Warman about it.

Ms Qureshi said: "A constituent recently contacted me to tell me his street struggles with a sluggish speed of up to 10Mbps, whereas other areas of Farnworth receive at least seven times that speed. This is a perfect example of the random patchwork of connection speeds across Bolton and the UK.

The UK is lagging well behind other countries in our connectivity."
