A series of upgrades are being made to the superfast broadband network on Dartmoor and Exmoor.

Internet service provider Airband completed its network in the two National Parks, on behalf of the Connecting Devon and Somerset project over three years ago.

Airband has now commissioned a number of new upgrades to ensure that customers on the moors continue to get the best possible service. These changes have included installation of lithium-ion batteries on its masts, improving its mast radios, as well as linking the network to its fibre network.

The improved mast radios now double their throughput to ensure customers have more data to work with.

How is this helping Devon reach net-zero?

Goal: Relocalisation of services, as well as use of technology, reduces the need to travel in all community types
