Guy Fawks - Burn the BT Open Reach Van effigy!

A small village in Devon have used their annual theme bonfire night to vent their frustrations about WiFi speeds – by burning a giant effigy of a BT Openreach transit van.


“Upload speeds are almost zero! There really are very few places in our village where a 2G phone signal can be reliably found, let alone 4G.


A spokesman from BT said: “Templeton is an extremely rural community which makes rolling out fibre broadband much more challenging. Templeton was not included in Openreach’s commercial roll-out of fibre broadband or the first phase of the Connecting Devon and Somerset partnership but we’re working hard to find alternative ways of bringing faster broadband to residents.
