Bringing the benefits of fibre broadband
to even more premises
Superfast Cornwall was first set up in 2011. There have been three separate phases of the programme, as the programme has continued to evolve.
The current programme runs from 2018-2020.
Part funded by the EU, this programme aims to upgrade more than 7,600 of the premises in Cornwall which have the slowest broadband speeds.
Certain postcode areas were identified for analysis. Find out more about how these postcode areas have been selected here. Detailed surveying and planning has been carried out in each of these areas. The rollout is nearly complete and the few outstanding areas are listed below.
Grants are available for premises not in the current plan – see our alternative solutions page
Phases 1-8 of the current programme were part-funded by the EU’s European Regional Development Fund (EDRF). Phases 9-10 are funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD).
Postcode areas where fibre broadband is now being rolled out
These are the postcode areas where the initial survey and planning stages have now been completed. The roll out of fibre broadband has been completed in most areas, below is a list of postcodes where there is still some outstanding work.
- Postcodes listed are those where at least 2 premises are due to be upgraded, most work will be completed by the end of 2020.
- Unforeseen circumstances can mean that upgrade plans for a given area may change. In some cases this can mean that unfortunately an area becomes economically unviable to complete.
- The map showing planned areas for upgrade has been discontinued. You can see a broadband coverage map here (click on UK Broadband Map and here (Enter postcode then click on View Map).
- Although we are using postcodes for this analysis, it is worth bearing in mind that this is an imprecise science! Unfortunately, the boundaries of postcode areas do not neatly align with the way the network deployment needs to happen. So once an area has been enabled, it is not necessarily true that all the premises in the postcode will experience an improvement in broadband speeds. Equally, speed improvements may also be seen outside the postcode areas specified.
