Those who have an interest in
the delivery of “Superfast” broadband services to the three villages may or may not be aware that there was a meeting on 24th February between residents of the villages and representatives of BT, Openreach and SuperFast Dorset.
In summary the current thinking is that a new fibre cabinet will be built on the small piece of ground next to the telephone box in Puncknowle. They will splice into the existing cables nearby and connect much of Puncknowle, though it’s not clear who exactly.  They plan to get it going towards the end of the year.
Swyre and West Bexington will not be connected and an alternative solution for residents there is being sought, but is unlikely to progress until after Puncknowle is connected.
