Figures obtained by the business lobby group indicate that 63% of small firms are dissatisfied with the speed of their broadband connection, compared to 48% of businesses in urban areas.

Meanwhile, 34% of small rural firms said they are unhappy with the reliability and a quarter (24%) with the value for money.
