bt fttc street cabinet uk installbt uk cornwall fibre optic broadbandThe £132 Million (£53.5m from ERDF and £78.5m from BT) 'Big Build' public and private sector partnership project in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, which aims to make BT's superfast broadband ISP services available to at least 80% (ideally 90%) of the regions businesses and homes by the end of 2014, has just connected up five more communities.

The communities include Trispen, Lanivet, Penryn, Porthtowan and Drakewalls. A recent survey of 200 locals in the small village Trispen revealed that 80% had previously experienced slow broadband speeds or connection problems.

Nigel Ashcroft, Programme Director of Superfast Cornwall for Cornwall Development Company, said:

"We're tremendously excited to bring superfast broadband to Trispen in particular, an area we've had on our radar for some time. As the first major phase of the programme roll-out gathers momentum, we've been delighted by the enthusiasm from local people - demand for better connectivity is high and we're looking to break some records on the take-up of this incredible new service. We really want businesses and people to grasp this early advantage and translate it into real economic benefit; new jobs and opportunities for all."

Further parts of the Truro and Liskeard areas have also been enabled. Overall some 14 communities will now gain access to superfast broadband services a year earlier than planned (i.e. 2012 instead of 2013), which includes Camelford, Perranporth, Trebetherick, Wadebridge, Padstow, Mitchell, Otterham, Port Isaac, St Columb Major, St Merryn, The Lizard, Tintagel, Rumford and Boscastle. They represent about 25,000 homes and businesses.
