In news that will come as no surprise, slow internet speeds are hindering the Sunshine Coast’s ability to do business.
Poole Group director Greg Tuckwell said “woefully slow” connection speeds were one of his biggest challenges.
“We do a lot in the cloud and we see the speeds are woeful, and it affects our productivity and the service we can deliver,” Mr Tuckwell told the Sunshine Coast Daily while attending the launch of the Draft Digital Action Plan last week.
“We have people working off site and it affects the speeds they can log in. There is infrastructure in place, but we need it sooner rather than later – this (need) is happening now.”
