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. This is the largest ever single European investment in superfast broadband infrastructure.
Funded by the EU, BT and Cornwall Council, and managed by Cornwall Development Company, Superfast Cornwall is bringing fast broadband internet connections to businesses, individuals and communities across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. It has the power to transform the way we all live, work and play. If you run a business, high speed broadband will have a direct impact on productivity, meaning you can do more with less and enable you to do things in completely new ways. The environment will benefit from superfast broadband too through reduced energy use and reduced travel, as more people will be able to work effectively from home at least some of the time. And for people right across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, regardless of age or background, superfast broadband will open up a whole new world of possibilities.
It is expected that fibre optic broadband will be brought within reach of at least 80% of people in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly by 2014, whilst we are aiming to bring faster broadband to everyone else using alternative technologies, so every single Cornish home and business can benefit from Superfast Cornwall by the end of the programme.
