Communities with poor internet connections may feel disconnected.
How we measure it:
Various measures of connectivity, with the average, maximum and total all considered. Whilst high speeds may be available, connection counts show actual take-up of services.
Communities with poor transport links may feel disconnected.
How we measure it:
Buses and rail were considered key public transport facilities. Rail was split two ways, as many communities have access to a minor rail station but are still some distance from any major station.
