The Connecting Devon and Somerset project in England has today confirmed the next 25 communities to benefit from their £94m roll-out of BT’s superfast broadband FTTC/P (25Mbps+) services, which is actually a clarification based on the general exchange areas that were announced last month.

CDS announced last month that their joint project with BT and the Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) office would push the new network coverage out to 70,000 homes and businesses by July 2014 and in relation to this several new exchange areas were confirmed (representing around 26,000 homes and businesses).

At the time the project was unable to pinpoint the actual communities within those exchange areas but today all that has changed.

In Devon the communities are..
Ashford
Landkey
Heanton Punchardon
Braunton
Morthoe
Swimbridge
Burlescombe
Feniton
Ottery St Mary
Dunkeswell
Membury
Honiton
Newton Abbot
Ashburton
Ilsington
Kingskerswell
Bovey Tracey
Belstone

In Somerset they are..
Horton
Barrington
Ilminster
Broadway
Dowlish Wake
Kingstone
Wellington

As before, some of the towns included in today’s announcement (e.g. Newton Abbot, Honiton, Ilminster and Wellington) already have some fibre broadband through commercial investment and will thus benefit from infill to expand the existing coverage.
