The Government announced last week that it is going to support a joint bid between Devon and Somerset for super-fast broadband to be installed and has agreed to hand out £30m to support this change. Local councils have also pledged £22m. Overall South-west councils can proceed with a huge investment program which may be in the region of £100m in total. The bid was only 1 in 3 that was permitted to proceed by the Government’s Broadband Delivery UK Unit (BDUK).
What this will mean is that that both home users and local business owners will benefit. Hundreds of thousands of business and homes in Devon can see return from this investment in super-fast broadband. This is especially prudent for rural businesses as it will mean they will be able to compete with urban competitors.
