Superfast broadband is rolled out into Chard and Crewkerne

SUPER FAST fibre broadband units have been going live in Chard and Crewkerne connecting internet users more quickly and efficiently.

Connecting Devon and Somerset has announced it has achieved a major milestone in its roll-out of super-fast fibre broadband.

More than 100,000 homes and businesses in the two counties now have access to fibre broadband as a result of the partnership.

The news comes as the Government announced last week that the nationwide roll-out of super fast broadband has now reached more than two million homes and businesses.

Around 12,500 orders have already been placed since the beginning of this year and demand continues to grow as more and more local people opt for the sophisticated fibre technology.
