Superfast Cornwall is a pioneering programme to bring superfast broadband to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, making it one of the best connected places in the world.
Funded by the EU, BT and Cornwall Council, and managed by Cornwall Development Company, Superfast Cornwall is building a brand new superfast broadband network. This will have the power to transform the life, work and play of each and every one of the half a million people living in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. What's more, superfast broadband will boost the economy of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, enabling businesses to work more effectively in new ways and potentially reach out to new customers worldwide. It is a 'Big Build' that promises big wins.
This is a massive undertaking. We're aiming to bring fibre based superfast broadband to 95% of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, and for those premises beyond the fibre footprint we're aiming to improve speeds using alternative technologies.
But once the Big Build is complete in 2014, the superfast broadband infrastructure in Cornwall will be amongst the very best worldwide and will last for decades to come. Superfast Cornwall is building broadband for our future.
