Following enquiries from residents I enquired about the situation from Devon County Council officers who got in touch with BT who confirmed that work to deliver broadband improvements to 10 cabinets requires “significant infrastructure build” … which need “road closures that have been hard to programme in.”

Engineers confirm that once the infrastructure has been built then the cabinets can all be upgraded. Work will take place around September time providing that engineers don’t find any further problems.

High speed broadband was set to come to the Ottery area by the end of this month – see this link – https://www.claire-wright.org/index.php/post/ottery_and_feniton_to_get_high_speed_broadband_by_the_end_of_july
