Southmarsh Community Scheme

Scheme Information

Wessex Internet is excited to announce that we are determining interest for a pure fibre community scheme in Southmarsh.

We are looking to fund this community scheme using the Gigabit Voucher and we have had our plans for this area approved by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

This scheme will allow small/medium enterprises (SME), businesses and residents to benefit from the Gigabit Voucher scheme subject to us receiving enough SME vouchers in this area.

Registration is open for anyone who is interested and please keep checking back for updates on this scheme.

Latest Update


We have now managed to successfully install all of those who registered originally on to our super-fast fibre network!

There is still funding left in the Gigabit Voucher scheme so if you do live in Southmarsh and are interested in a fibre connection, please get in touch.


We have now completed the main network build and garden works for the Southmarsh scheme, excluding 1 small section. We will be returning in May to complete these works. Installations are now being arranged for those who have had completed garden works. Please get in touch if you haven’t heard from us.


Our construction/garden teams are looking to be in the area next week. If you know of anyone in Southmarsh who have not yet registered but would benefit from an FTTP connection, please ask them to get in touch ASAP.


Ground conditions are improving and the construction team has advised they would like to have the network build completed before the 01/05/2019 for this scheme. Our Garden work team will contact everyone with an issued voucher in due course to discuss the garden works required for each connection.


We are still waiting for ground conditions to improve in the area. The construction team are busy planning their spring workload and we will hopefully have an estimated date for the remaining installations soon.


We laid fibre cabling in 2018 through Southmarsh/Charlton Musgrove. We will return to finish the garden works required for each connections and any further network extension when the ground conditions improve


We are accepting registrations of interest from local homes & businesses
