Wessex Internet

Wessex Internet is currently delivering full fibre broadband to more than 4,700 homes and businesses in earmarked hamlets and villages across South Somerset.

The first connections of its three year rollout have already been made in the North Cadbury area and it's continuing to connect properties in Woolston, Sutton Montis and surrounding areas. The construction of its network will now move on to Hardington Mandeville.

Wessex Internet updates


Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) has confirmed that it has terminated its two contracts with Bath-based broadband provider Truespeed.
The contracts have been terminated on the basis of Truespeed’s failure to meet key contractual commitments made at the time contracts were awarded.
The decision to terminate is supported by the Government’s Building Digital UK (BDUK) agency which is represented on the CDS Board.

Truespeed updates


Openreach’s “Gainshare” agreement with the Government has provided £6 million of funding for re-investment by CDS. This is funding a further collaboration with Openreach to extend full fibre broadband connectivity to around 2,000 hard to reach rural premises.

Openreach updates


Airband has already provided a superfast wireless network for more than 11,700 homes and businesses in Devon and Somerset through its pre-existing contracts with CDS.

It is currently delivering full fibre broadband to more than 6,000 premises in Central Devon, North Devon, Torridge and West Devon, and over 40,100 homes and businesses in earmarked areas of Somerset West and Taunton, parts of Sedgemoor, East Devon, as well as areas of Mid Devon, South Hams and Teignbridge.
