Comments (0)


The first rural communities to benefit from a £94m superfast broadband partnership have been announced.

In Devon, Moretonhampstead, Holsworthy and Sticklepath, near Okehampton will also benefit from quicker speeds.

The service will start to be available in the towns by the end of the year.

According to regulator Ofcom, the average download speed in Somerset is 8Mbps and 9.2Mbps in Devon.

Most of the programme will use Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) technology, where the fibre optics run from the telephone exchange to a street cabinet.

This can deliver download speeds of up to 80Mbps and upload speeds of up to 20Mbps.

Construction work for Sticklepath and Bradford on Tone has started three months ahead of schedule and by early 2014, the first phase of the programme is due to have made the high-speed technology available to at least 15,000 homes and businesses.
