Super-fast broadband coming to villages in Cornwall

Bookmark and Share

by Darren Allan

There’s some good news for the residents of eight villages in Cornwall, who are set to have the magic super-fast broadband wand waved over them.

Stenalees, Leedstown, St Agnes, St Day, Chiverton Cross, Devoran, Portreath and Par are all down to receive access to up to 100Mbps fibre from BT.

A mix of fibre-to-the-premises (100Mbps) and fibre-to-the-cabinet (40Mbps) services will be rolled out, initially to some 10,000 homes and businesses in the area by March 2011.

The project has been funded to the tune of £132 million, the Press Association reports. £78.5 million of that is being provided by BT itself, and the rest is coming from the European Regional Development Fund Convergence.

BT South West Regional Director Jon Reynolds commented: “It is excellent news that the first Cornish businesses and homes will have access to super-fast broadband at such an early stage.”
