Superfast progress for Somerset
Homes and businesses across the towns of Somerton and Langport in Somerset could be connected to new superfast broadband services by the end of this summer.

This is the aim of the ongoing Connecting Devon and Somerset scheme, which aims to deliver superfast connections to 90 per cent of areas across the county by the end of the year.

The project is a collaboration between BT and Somerset County Council, with the Western Gazette reporting both partners are keen to see as many communities as possible included in the current phase of rollout plans.

Newly-elected local constituency MP David Warburton told the publication: "We welcome the fibre optic installations and look forward to superfast broadband becoming a reality and it can't come quick enough."

He added that delivering on promises of faster broadband for the south-west will be a key aim in his coming parliamentary term.
