Roger Lindon lives in Templeton, and is not convinced by the company's promise to improve coverage.
He said they have been waiting for three years: "They managed to get a cable to the nearby hamlet of Nomansland, but just eight kilometres further and there's nothing.
"It's incompetence of the first order... but we all had a great evening watching the bonfire."
With a speed of 0.7 megabits per second, Mr Linden says - like many others in the village - he cannot stream anything and is only able to look at emails and occasionally browse the internet.
BT said Templeton in Devon is extremely rural, which made the rollout of fibre broadband "more challenging".
