The local BT Exchange has been upgraded and is now offering ADSL2+ (up to 24 Mbps) to customers not connected to a fibre cabinet (i.e. those not local to the village centre).

This should improve the speed for residents within 2 km of the exchange, i.e. from Newlands Hill north to the B3227 and also the Warkleigh church area.

Residents should speak to their broadband provider to confirm they are on an ADSL2+ profile and, if not, ask for a regrade.
