SuperFast Exmoor - ENPA's plan

The Exmoor National Park Authority (ENPA), with a range of partners, is preparing a bid to Defra's £26 million Rural Community Broadband Fund which is targeted at "hard to reach" areas.

As part of this application the Park need to demonstrate that there is sufficient "local need and demand" for superfast broadband (superfast meaning at least 24Mb per second).

A leaflet from ENPA explaining the benefits and asking you to register an interest is attached here.
