Connecting rural areas to the grid

Connecting Devon and Somerset’s broadband user survey closes on Sunday 9 December.

Rural broadband speedConnecting Devon and Somerset has been set up to deliver next generation broadband infrastructure to areas where the market has failed to invest.

CDS is a local government-led partnership aimed at drawing on the strengths of each sector to implement a cost efficient plan to bring superfast broadband to Devon and Somerset.

The survey aims to capture people’s broadband needs and compare whether these needs are being met by the service they receive.

The survey is open to all residents and businesses within Devon and Somerset and in addition to capturing the impact from the new infrastructure, it will help identify the broadband needs across our counties and the data will influence our future Digital Strategy.

The broadband user survey asks questions about current available speeds, what homes or businesses can and cannot do with their existing broadband and the levels of satisfaction with their provider.

The survey typically takes about 5 minutes to complete online and can be found at

Connecting Devon and Somerset is keen for the survey to be completed by as many local residents and businesses as possible.
