A LIST of 31 more places to get superfast broadband with speeds of 24Mbps or higher has been revealed, but none are in mid-Somerset.
The Connecting Devon and Somerset campaign has previously said the first seven areas to see superfast broadband – delivered mainly in the form of fibre optic – would be Bishops Lydeard, Bradford-on-Tone, Creech St Michael, Holsworthy, Monkton Heathfield, Moretonhampstead, Sticklepath, Taunton and Bridgwater.
So far Glastonbury, Street and Shepton Mallet have been rolled out in mid-Somerset with just partial upgrades. Exchanges in Wells and the Cheddar Valley are still waiting for their upgrades.

Fibre optic broadband is touted to have download speeds of 80Mbps and upload speeds of 20Mbps.
Many parts of rural Somerset currently experience download speeds of 2Mbps and upload speeds half of that.
Connecting Devon and Somerset is a £94 million project to deliver superfast broadband speeds of 24Mbps and above, available to around 90 per cent of homes and businesses by the end of 2016.
Councillor David Hall, deputy leader of Somerset County Council, said: "The Big Build now feels like it is truly under way.
"This tremendous step forward is a pay off for all the careful planning that goes on behind the scenes.
"The team has been working flat out to get to this stage.
"I look forward to the economic growth and development that access to high speed fibre broadband will bring."
The partnership includes Devon and Somerset county councils, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset, Plymouth and Torbay councils, BT and the UK Government's Superfast Britain programme.
