The rollout of the Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) programme has connected another 2,500 homes and businesses in Devon and Somerset with full fibre broadband.

The ongoing progress of the CDS programme will connect a greater number of rural communities, with a over 315,000 premises being upgraded as a result of CDS investment. Having easier access to the internet will minimise carbon emissions from travelling and help to support more people as working from home becomes the norm.

How is this helping Devon reach net-zero?   

Goal: Relocalisation of services, as well as use of technology, reduces the need to travel in all community types
