Fibre Broadband

We have been advised by the organisation Connecting Devon and Somerset that “Wilmington cabinet 2 went live at the start of this month and residents connected to it should now be able to order a service”. Their website advises that you will need to check with an internet service provider (ISP) in order to determine which cabinet you are connected to. They will also be able to conduct a line check to see if a fibre service is available at your premises; as well as gain an estimate for the potential line speed.
