What is the project all about?

The Connecting Devon and Somerset programme has secured £31 million from the government to roll out faster broadband across our region. Local authorities have added a further £20 million, bringing the total to just over £50 million. The aim of the project is for all our businesses and communities to have access to faster broadband by 2015 with 85% of them enjoying superfast broadband. Our end goal is for the whole region to have access to superfast broadband by 2020.
