Rousdon residents to air broadband grievances
A public meeting in Rousdon, East Devon has been called to discuss the poor quality of broadband services in the area.Frustrated residents of an East Devon village have called a public meeting to discuss the lack of progress made towards improving local broadband connections.
The Trinity Broadband committee, which was established almost three years ago to find a solution to the poor-quality internet services available in and around Combpyne and Rousdon, has failed to discover whether or not the area will benefit from the Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) scheme.
Backed by central government funding, CDS aims to bring super-fast speeds to 91 per cent of properties across Devon and Somerset, with announcements about the locations included in the programme set to be made on a rolling basis. This means the Rousdon area could be forced to wait until almost 2016 to discover if it will be upgraded.
The meeting, which will take place at Rousdon's Peek Hall this evening (June 27th 2013), has been called to discuss the issues surrounding broadband and the CDS rollout.
Trinity Broadband Secretary Rod Boyce said: "We feel extremely frustrated, in that after three years we have achieved no improvement in our broadband."
