Exmoor To Get Superfast Broadband

| February 12, 2013 | Reply

There are plenty of rural towns in the UK that require and need superfast broadband. Well, the residents of Exmoor are in for a treat. A group of residents and businesses plan to set up their own broadband service. This came after an announcement from BT that they would not be increasing the speed of its broadband service in much of the region due to the high cost involved.

The group need to apply to the government’s Rural Community Broadband Fund which is a way for rural communities to get their hands on a grant for communities in remote areas.

If they manage to get this accepted, the group will be able to go ahead in 2014 where half of the estimated £500,000 set up cost would be provided by the grant.

A spokesman said:

“Our aspiration is to try and get everywhere on Exmoor on superfast broadband.”

I set up Hot Deals Monster because I was frustrated with the lack of deals specifically targeted to Men. I wasn't interested in cheap nappies or 10p off my next box of cornflakes. I wanted real, interesting deals that would genuinely help and save money for the male consumer.
