Blackdown Hills Online is a website for all residents and visitors to the Blackdowns Hills.

The BHPN Steering Group has today written an open letter to the Government pointing out that Connecting Devon & Somerset have still not let a contract to complete Phase 2 High speed Broadband rollout to their rural communities. They were allocated £27m eight years ago to do it! The vast majority of that rural community is struggling to work from home, complete educational assignments, shop and stay in touch during the lock down with abysmally low speeds and unstable broadband. Govt should take charge and take it out of county hands.
