About a year ago you were asking people to take part in a different survey. Why do we need to fill in this one too?

Connecting Devon and Somerset ran a survey last year to find out if people really were interested in getting faster broadband. The results of this survey helped us win over £30m in funding from Broadband Delivery UK.

The ‘Get Connected’ campaign is all about putting together the information we need to attract suppliers to bid for the installation of the necessary infrastructure for better broadband. We need to register details for at least 10,000 participants across Devon and Somerset to give us a statistically representative view of needs across our region.

But that’s not all. We’d like to find out where demand for faster broadband is particularly high. This will help us attract more investment from the private sector and will strengthen our negotiations with suppliers. That’s why even if you are not contacted by our researchers, it’s still important for you to register your details through our website or by calling our hotline on 0844 463 6887.
