Get up to speed in Exmoor

SUPERFAST broadband is coming to Exmoor and a series of community briefings are planned to tell people more about getting connected and how they can get up to speed.

Worcester-based Airband has been contracted by Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) to deliver superfast to moorland residents and businesses in both counties.

The briefings, due to run from 7pm-9pm will include an introduction from Dan James from Exmoor National Park Authority, setting the context for the evening followed by Matt Barrow from CDS who will provide an update on the superfast programme.

The Get Up to Speed team will talk about their programme of free workshops to help people make the most of the vastly improved connectivity while Dan Jones from Airband will explain the fixed wireless solution for Exmoor.

There will then be an open question and answer session to make sure people have the chance to raise any queries or concerns.

Sessions are being held at

  • Winsford Village Hall – November 2
  • Dunster Tithe Barn – November 16
  • Dulverton Middle School – November 25
  • Porlock– November 26
  • Parracombe– November 30
  • Lynton Town Hall – December 10.
