A town in north Devon has been benefitting from the introduction of a faster broadband cables service in the area.
Instow is one of five communities in the region to have enjoyed upgrades that mean its download speeds now reach 20 Mbps, the North Devon Gazette reports.
The move to introduce new copper cable networks in the area comes on top of BT's plans to ensure two-thirds of the UK can make use of the new service by 2014.
Ben Rhodes, chief executive for the Devon and Cornwall Business Council, noted: "In a fast-changing, increasingly competitive world, faster broadband is tremendously important for local businesses and for individuals wanting to develop their skills and education."
John Reynolds, regional director for BT south-west, noted that while 77 per cent of houses and companies have access to the improved broadband cables service at present, this is likely to rise to 84 per cent in the next 12 months.
