A move to bring broadband to Cornwall using both public and private sector funding is to be expanded.

More than 1,000 businesses and homes have signed up for broadband at six BT exchanges in Truro, St Austell, Redruth, Camborne, Newquay and Penzance since the ACT NOW scheme went live in April this year.

With new orders being received at a rate of 50 a week, a further three more exchanges in Falmouth, Bodmin and Launceston are due to be converted to ADSL by September 19.

Those behind the public/private sector initiative claim that if similar take-up levels are seen here, then exchanges in St Ives, Bude, Saltash and Penryn could also be singled out for broadband.

ACT NOW is backed by European cash. Partners in the scheme include BT, Cornwall County Council and the South West of England Regional Development Agency. ®
