Broadband in Bickleigh Village

“I had a meeting with officials from Connecting Devon & Cornwall last week. Broadband coverage has been extremely poor in Bickleigh ever since broadband was invented. The village has suffered download speeds of less that 2mb for many years. BT have now been awarded a contract to install high speed broadband into rural areas and Bickleigh and Shaugh Prior are one of the first areas to benefit. Surveying of the area is due to commence around 01 June and the objective is to cable the whole area within the next 3 to 6 months. This will include all properties that do not currently have high speed broadband. Cable will be to individual properties and will give access irrespective of broadband provider. This news is welcomed by the Council but there is some disappointment regarding time scales over which we have no control. Cllr Barrie Spencer”
