Broadband speed checks for rural businesses

Cornwall Council is developing a follow-on Superfast 3 project, again part-funded by the EU. The project is expected to run from late 2020 to 2022.

The funding will be far from sufficient to cover all slow premises, so to assist the Council with targeting please can you let us know of any clusters of rural businesses that cannot currently get good broadband speeds? You can check expected speeds at www.dslchecker.bt.com and check current plans at www.superfastcornwall.org/current-programme.

Please send any lists of business addresses to broadband@cornwall.gov.uk with a subject line of “Business clusters in Camelford Network Area ”.

Please  note that the Council is analysing the full database of all 312,000 premises in Cornwall, so this is just a sanity check to help ensure any key business clusters are appropriately logged.
