The £94 million Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) project in England has announced the next 31 local communities that can expected to receive an upgrade to support BT’s “high-speed fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) service by March 2014.

The project, which with the above development will extend the number of homes and businesses that are able to benefit from the local Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) supported programme to 44,000, ultimately aims to make superfast broadband (25Mbps+) services available to “around” 90% of local premises by the end of 2016 (here).

The 31 Communities (Completion by the end of March 2014)

Bishop’s Hull, Bridford, Chilton Trinity, Christow, Combe Florey, Comeytrowe, Corfe, Cotford St. Luke, Crediton, Dunchideock, Exminster, Hatherleigh, Hemyock, Newton St. Cyres, North Tawton, Nynehead, Okehampton, Okehampton Hamlets, Petrockstow, Ruishton, Sampford Arundel, Sandford, Shillingford St. George, Shobrooke, South Tawton, Stoke St. Gregory, Thurloxton, Trull, Wembdon, West Buckland and West Monkton.

Laurent Boon, BT’s Programme Manager for CDS, said:

The arrival of fibre broadband is one of the most important investments in Devon and Somerset in recent times. High-speed fibre broadband is transforming the way we live and work. For businesses, it can help deliver a competitive edge, which will help them attract new customers and find new, more efficient ways of working. For households, it’s ideal for quick and efficient on-line shopping, entertainment, education, research and social networking.”

An updated coverage map is available on the projects website but as usual it’s extremely sparse on detail.
