Residents of South Gloucestershire have criticised the attempts to improve broadband in the region.
A meeting of people living in the Chipping Sodbury area is set to be held in order to discuss the lack of connectivity and call for an improved service.
Commenting on the current situation, business owner Richard Williams told local newspaper the Gazette: "The council has paid BT millions and they have not delivered. If I sold them a car that only went for a few miles I bet they wouldn't be too happy."
He claimed the slow speeds currently available mean his staff have to travel to Bristol in order to upload photos to their website.
David Perry, deputy chief executive of South Gloucestershire Council, is expected to attend the meeting, which will take place on Thursday (September 25th).
The Federation of Small Businesses and the Countryside Alliance will also be represented at the gathering.
Some £35.6 million is currently being spent in a bid to improve broadband in the South Gloucestershire region.
