Cullompton gets fibre-optic web ahead of other Mid towns
HIGH-SPEED fibre optic broadband will soon be available to around 3,300 homes and businesses in the Cullompton area.
The town was named as one of three in Devon where BT engineers are completing work to install the technology in the coming weeks.
The company says Tiverton will be upgraded later this year. No date has yet been set for Crediton.
Fibre optics offer a top current download speed of 330Mbps. According to regulator Ofcom, the current average UK broadband speed is 9Mbps.

By the end of spring 2014 more than 296,000 Devon homes and businesses and more than 1.4 million premises across the South West will be able to benefit from BT's £2.5billion fibre broadband roll-out programme.
The company is working in partnership with the public sector to reach parts of the South West that lie outside its commercial fibre broadband plans.
Ben Rhodes, chief executive of the Devon and Cornwall Business Council, said: "This is an important step forward. High-speed digital connectivity is a defining factor in our long-term success."
