The Connecting Devon and Somerset programme, which has been heralded as bringing superfast broadband to North Devon, has been delayed yet again.
According to a Connecting Devon and Somerset quote published by BBC News about the contract with BT, “both sides have been unable to reach agreement over ‘significant issues’.”
Yet again connectingdevonandsomerset.co.uk has not been updated with this important news and its Twitter account, which only promotes its events, has not been updated since 7 January. It only carries good news.
I think this is the biggest reason why such a critical infrastructure project should not be managed by county councils.
