Superfast Broadband is Coming to Porthleven
The plan to roll out superfast broadband through-out Cornwall is well under way with many places able to access this now, or very soon. But how does Porthleven fair in this? Pretty good really, as since a briefing I recently attended I am mightily impressed with what has happened and what is going to happen in the next twelve months.
Porthleven will get fibre to the premises (FTTP) and fibre to the cabinet (FTTC). Now, I cannot say too much at the moment due to some of this information is still restricted, but what I can say is a lot of Porthleven will be able to access FTTP. The FTTC should be available in the first half of 2012, with FTTP being available in the latter half of the year.
This is a huge project with the aim of 250,000 premises covered by 2014, and 10,000 businesses connected by 2015. So far, 16,000 premises have availability of FTTC with the aim of having 90,000 by the end of March 2012.
