Superfast Cornwall UK Project Connects 31000 to BT Fibre Broadband

Tuesday, Oct 15th, 2013 (1:02 pm) - Score 915

Some 31,000 customers have now subscribed to a superfast broadband (FTTC/P) connection in Cornwall thanks to BT’s joint £132m public (EU) and privately funded Superfast Cornwall project, which aims to make the operators network available to 95% of local premises by the end of 2014.

The figure, which marks a steady increase from the 28,000 recorded in July 2013 and the 24,000 in May 2013, also reveals that 3,700 of the connections have been taken by businesses. Overall some 200,000 local premises are now covered by the new network (more than 75% of the area). Funnily enough that’s what they claimed it was at back in June 2013 before a correction (here).

The latest area to receive the new service is Wadebridge, which is a small town in northern Cornwall with a population of around 7,000 people. Feel free to head over to the projects website if you want to indulge in some PR spin and read about how happy the Royal Cornwall Showground is with their new service.
