Connection news

Burnham residents are being encouraged to sign up for the campaign for better broadband provision.

Connecting Devon and Somerset, a collaboration between Somerset County Council, Devon County Council, North Somerset Council, Plymouth City Council and Torbay Council, is aiming to get 100 per cent coverage of broadband with speeds of up to 2Mb and 85 per cent at speeds of up to 24Mb by 2015.

It is hoped that all residents and businesses in the area will have access to super-fast broadband by 2020.

As part of the campaign people are being asked to fill in a questionnaire about their broadband access with 10,000 responses needed.

Speaking to Burnham on Sea, Councillor David Hall said that as much support for the initiative as possible is needed.

Describing the questionnaires as a "call to arms" he added that without any evidence that better broadband is needed the group will not be able to persuade providers to work with them.

The UK government plans to create a super-fast broadband network in the UK by 2015.
