Airband Community Liaison

I would just like to formally introduce myself as the Airband Community Liaison Officer for your area.

You may be aware that CDS (Connecting Devon and Somerset), with support from the Government, commissioned Airband to deliver full ultrafast fibre to property (FTTP) broadband to 17,974 homes and businesses in earmarked areas of Devon and Somerset, requiring the construction of an estimated 745 miles of fibre network. Some of this work has already started.

My role is purely to liaise with the Parish Council and parishioners alike, to ensure we provide a continual communication flow throughout the fibre broadband project. I am your direct point of contact should you have any questions or issues arise throughout this period and beyond.

Please feel free to contact me on this email address at any time, or to arrange for me to visit and address any questions or concerns you have:

If you have not done so already, I would recommend that you register your interest in fibre broadband on our website
