Reasons for Termination of Gigaclear Broadband Programme in Devon

Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) has stated that Gigaclear gave 5 main reasons for delayed rollout which lead to the termination of its contract.

Graham Long, chairman of campaign group Fast Broadband for Rural Devon and Somerset, is reported to have stated that one of the reasons was that some of the roads didn't have proper foundations so they couldn't use narrow trenches so had to do a lot more work.

But CDS said "Poor road foundations wasn't one of them [the reasons]."

Gigaclear connected about 496 properties before its contract was terminated.
