Cotford St Luke gets superfast broadband boost
MORE than 330 homes and businesses in Cotford St Luke can now order superfast broadband, after the village became the latest to benefit from the £94 million Connecting Devon and Somerset programme.
The village’s first fibre broadband cabinet was switched on yesterday and villagers should be able to get broadband speeds of up to 80mbps – the current Somerset average is 10.1mbps.
Councillor David Hall, deputy leader of Somerset County Council, said: “High speed fibre broadband is one of the most important considerations for companies looking to move into and invest in our area as well as being vital in enabling our local businesses to grow and flourish. “For our communities, with many aspects of public services moving online, having access to high speed broadband is now a necessity.”
