Kentisbury Ford, a small village in Devon, now has access to Airband’s ultrafast fibre network, Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) and Airband have announced today. The service provides homes and businesses in the area some of the fastest broadband speeds in the UK.
Prior to the rollout, Kentisbury Ford’s connection speed is less than 10Mbps. The new fibre optic broadband network provides 10 times faster speeds enough to stream ultra HD on four devices simultaneously, or download an HD movie in five minutes.
Simon Palmer, project manager at Airband, is delighted with how smoothly the process has gone. He said: “Bringing ultrafast to Kentisbury Ford represents everything that Airband is about – we are transforming connectivity for people and communities who deserve better. It’s so rewarding to be able to provide such a vast improvement in broadband speeds and the reaction and appreciation from the villagers here has been incredible.
Councillor Rufus Gilbert, Devon County Council Cabinet Member for Economy and Skills, said: “It's encouraging to see the roll out of full fibre across Devon and Somerset and it's great to think that people in Kentisbury Ford can now access some of the fastest broadband speeds in the country.”
