Super fast boost for Bay
A MULTI-MILLION pound investment bringing super fast broadband to more areas of South Devon is designed to benefit residents as well as businesses.
The arrival of faster broadband could give a £143million boost to a typical town's economy and create 225 new jobs and 140 new businesses within 15 years, it has been estimated.
The roll-out is seen as another major boost to the Bay's economy as work is about to start on the Kingskerswell bypass.

BT has confirmed it will spread its £2.5billion high-speed fibre broadband network to 58,000 more homes and businesses in Devon.
The 11 latest Devon communities to benefit, include Torquay, Totnes, Dawlish and Bovey Tracey. These are due to be upgraded during 2013.
Newton Abbot is leading the way with the high-speed fibre broadband now available to the first 14,000 homes and businesses in the town.
It should start to become available in Dartmouth in the next few weeks and Teignmouth by the end of the year.
St Marychurch, Torquay, Paignton, Brixham, Churston, Dawlish, Bovey Tracey and Totnes will all be upgraded next year.
By the end of next year, superfast fibre broadband should be available to more than 80,000 homes and businesses in these South Devon communities.
Plymouth, Exeter and Ivybridge have already 'gone live'.
Torbay mayor Gordon Oliver welcomed the news saying: "BT is helping to deliver world class broadband infrastructure across Torbay, which, along with the new South Devon Link Road, will further improve Torbay's connectivity and help us build on our recent success as a growing business location.
"Everyone recognises the importance of super-fast broadband, not just for its contribution to the local economy and potential to create new businesses and jobs, but for every aspect of modern life.
"In the current economic climate, such an investment is to be greatly welcomed. But longer-term it's also essential that people and organisations take up this exciting technology and make the most of the new network."
