The rollout of fibre broadband across Cornwall is to be supported by a new super-fast broadband training centre in the north of the county.

Around 150 young engineers will be trained at the new facility in Bodmin, before joining the county's £132 million next-generation broadband project.

The centre is based in BT's telephone exchange at Crinnicks Hill in the town, reports the BBC.

Liv Garfield, Chief Executive of BT's local network business Openreach, noted that the Superfast Cornwall initiative presents "a huge engineering challenge".

"More than 130,000 kilometres of optical fibre will be installed in the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly network," she confirmed.

"In the coming years, engineers will be installing super-fast broadband in tens of thousands of local homes and businesses."

Last September, BT announced plans to equip 90 per cent of homes in Cornwall with super-fast broadband.
