We covered the news that a corner of North East Somerset was set to see FTTP via Wansdyke Telecom just a couple of weeks ago and it seems that things are progressing quickly as the first two demonstration properties have been connected to the FTTP network by Wansdyke Telecom.
"Newton Farm shop, here in Newton St Loe, is now clearly the fastest farm shop in the west! Customers can now access ultrafast broadband speeds whilst they sip their coffee or buy local produce. We’re demonstrating what a rural business can achieve with a truly high quality, really fast broadband connection. We will be hosting further events for both businesses and residential customers, as well as potential investors.David Bland of Wansdyke Telecom
The network build involves getting FTTP linked to properties and Newton St Loe is set to be the base node with the network build radiating out from there to some of the most rural communities in North East Somerset. We are expecting details on pricing and what product options will be available next month.
