Superfast Cornwall, a partnership between the European Union, BT and Cornwall Council was launched in 2010. Using up to £78.5 million from BT and up to £53.5 million from the European Regional Development Fund, the £132 million programme's initial aim was to make fibre broadband available to at least 80 per cent of Cornish homes and businesses by the end of 2014.
As a result of cost efficiencies achieved by BT since the programme began, the Superfast Cornwall project has announced a modified target to make fibre broadband available to 95% of Cornish homes and businesses by the end of 2014.
