Connecting Devon and Somerset is currently engaging with Truespeed in relation to delays in its contracted roll-out of full fibre broadband and the impact as a result of commercial build by other providers in parts of its contracted areas.
CDS is currently in communication with Truespeed around its position which will then be reviewed by CDS and the Government’s Building Digital UK (BDUK) agency.
Truespeed has reported a number of connections are in build or are at the planning stage under the CDS contracts. The company has reported a further number of homes and businesses now have access to full fibre broadband in CDS areas. All are subject to final assurance by CDS and BDUK and therefore it is not possible to provide confirmed figures at this stage, and no public funding has been claimed by Truespeed.
