Unlocking the Digital Potential of Rural Areas

We have  been asked by John Parnell of Business Durham to inform you of the following;  “Rural England CIC and Scotland’s Rural College have been commissioned by Amazon UK to carry out research on how to unlock the digital potential of the rural economy, looking at connectivity, participation, skills, culture and the adoption of innovation.


As part of the project they are carrying out a short survey with rural businesses and would be very grateful for your help in answering the questions here. This should take no more than 15 minutes. Please note that any information you submit will be confidential and individual responses will not be identifiable. The information will not be used for any purpose other than this research and only the project team will have access to the data. For the purposes of the survey, ‘digital connectivity’ should be taken to include internet connections made via a fixed (phone) line or a mobile, or via Wi-Fi or satellite.”
