BT is making good progress with the rollout of fibre broadband services in Cornwall, it has been reported.
The service provider is upgrading its network infrastructure across the county to deliver super-fast broadband to homes and businesses.
BT has now achieved 50 per cent fibre coverage in Cornwall - an area of previously poor connectivity.
Nigel Ashcroft, Programme Director of Superfast Cornwall, said this landmark represents a "momentous milestone" for the initiative.
"I’m proud and excited to say we’re on track in making Cornwall one of the best connected places in the world, bringing a world of possibilities to thousands of rural villages," he stated.
Mr Ashcroft claimed such investment represents "a vital boost" for homes, businesses and the local economy.
Superfast Cornwall is an ambitious £132 million programme which aims to bring super-fast broadband to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
It represents the European Union's largest ever single investment in super-fast broadband infrastructure.
