Superfast broadband in Somerset money backed
The news that superfast broadband in Somerset will be given millions of pounds of investment thanks to approval of state aid by the European Commission has been welcomed by a South West MEP.
Liberal Democrat Sir Graham Watson said: "I am delighted that the investment has finally been approved, which will be matched with further private investment.
"However I hope that Broadband Delivery UK and the European Commission will look into the reasons why this sign off took so long.
"We can now proceed to bring the vital investment that is required to rural communities and towns across the area and put in place the tools that are required to spur economic growth in the west."
