A quarter of all Cornish homes and businesses now have access to superfast broadband.
Superfast Cornwall said today that about 66,000 Cornish premises can now receive the service, with the technology operating in 35 of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly’s 100 telephone exchange areas.
Ranulf Scarbrough, BT’s Superfast Cornwall programme director, said: “This is great progress. The fact that we have just brought superfast fibre broadband to communities as far afield as Penzance in the far West, Torpoint in the east and Newquay in the north helps demonstrate the scale and breadth of the roll-out.
“We are well on course to reaching 100,000 premises during the spring.”
