Devon Broadband - Update

There is a House of Commons Debate on Thursday 19th

May - this highlights the 'political will' of providing faster broadband. I

would like to see at least one Devon MP speaking up for the County in this

debate.

There will be 4 or 5 projects announced at the end of May

2011 by Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) - a new Government Quango (in type). I

have a feeling that one at least will be in Devon, the Cinderella of Broadband in

England.

BT Openreach is due to announce further fibre optic

roll-out in the Autumn (2011). With a new CEO, Olivia Garfield and the public facing plans ending March 2012. I would

not be surprised to see earlier announcements. Let's hope it is not totally cherry

picked or a grace and favour upgrading telephone exchange listing.

Devon County Council must not go

back to sleep – if that is the state of saying or doing nothing in bringing

superfast broadband to the greater part of its area. When the results of 'bidding'

for better broadband are announced, let's have a Press Release with some real

thoughts on. Not just the usual small sound bite that says or means little.
