BiGDiG is still working for faster broadband in the Devauden area.

Do you run a business in Devauden? 

If so, you will be interested to hear that you may soon be able to receive an even faster, future-proof, broadband service.

Here's what is proposed:

  • Speeds of up to 100Mbps

  • No connection fee

  • No long-winded application forms

  • Packages starting from 15 per month.

Visit the SuperConnected Cities  Page to find out how your business can take advantage of even faster broadband in Devauden.

Spectrum Internet may be able to provide this to businesses in Devauden that are eligible for vouchers under the Government's SuperConnected Cities programme and this would involve installing a Fibre-to-the-premise (FTTP) service in the area.  Clearly, this would be a significant step towards a FTTP service for residents too.

If you are interested in being part of this scheme then please send an email to info@bigdig.org.

You can find out more about this scheme on our SuperConnected Cities Programme Page.

Current Status of the BiGDiG Project

BiGDiG was successful in bringing superfast broadband to Devauden in March 2013 and, as a result, over 100 households are now receiving an improved internet service.

The BiGDiG team has continued to work with Spectrum Internet to extend the coverage to other parts of our community.  For example, a wireless system that enables properties in The Cot to be connected was installed during Autumn 2013 and this has now been providing a reliable service for a year.   Despite that success, not everyone who registered their interest with us when our campaign was first launched we are currently investigating an innovative scheme that may resolve the difficulty in reaching these homes.  Ensuring that all parts of our community are able to benefit from superfast broadband remains our primary objective.
