Another two thousand Cornish homes and business are hooked up to superfast broadband.

It is being rolled out in places like Truro, Falmouth, Liskeard and Launceston.

The work is being carried out three months ahead of schedule.

Bosses hope eighty percent of the Duchy will go live by 2014.

Nigel Ashcroft is programme director of the Superfast Cornwall project. In a statement, he said: "This is another very important step forward in the development of an initiative vital to the future prosperity of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Superfast Cornwall's rapid roll-out programme is matched by great local enthusiasm and support for this high-speed technology."

Ranulf Scarbrough from BT, who are in charge of laying the fibre-optic cables, said: " Of course, a huge amount remains to be done. We are still at a relatively early stage of the roll-out in most of these communities. Over the coming months we will be making the technology much more widely available both in these locations and many others. There will be considerable challenges in the months and years ahead, but already this pioneering partnership is a great success story."
