Well, we are continually being told that £xxx is earmarked to bring this everywhere, especially rural areas.

What about parts of Dawlish that haven't got it yet ? e.g. where I live (the West Cliff area) ?

How many other parts of Dawlish are still struggling with copper cable ?

When I was living in west london during the mid 1980's we had fibre cable being installed then.

I live within Dawlish and not that far from both West Cliff area and have a direct line of sight to the BT exchange building and have had fibre for a while, but the speed is still not that fast because there is still copper wire in the network.

It just amazes me in this day and age that it can take so long to cover the whole of Dawlish with fibre that could assist many homes and businesses.

It seems anything to do with Dawlish that would be practical and beneficial is ignored for the expensive and superficial.
