In this issue of In Touch you can read about a new £17 million deal which will take ultrafast broadband to some of Cornwall's most remote areas. And thousands more Dorset homes and businesses are to benefit from the fastest broadband speeds under multi million pound plans which have been announced.
There’s also news on two Community Fibre Partnerships, that have been agreed with residents of two Devon villages and one in Dorset for the roll-out of high-speed fibre broadband to their communities.
We are also taking part in a jointly funded research programme with Bristol University, and finally BT has celebrated 80 years of the 999 service – the world’s oldest emergency call service handles more than two million emergency calls a year are handled across the South West.
