Scilly’s MP says we will become “one the best internet-connected group of islands on the planet” today with the official launch of superfast broadband.

Andew George says he has been lobbying for this faster internet connection since the Superfast Cornwall programme was established seven years ago.

Although our MP can’t make it over for the launch event today, he says he welcomes the visit by the Communities Minister Lord Ahmad to Scilly this morning.

And Mr Gorge claims the new connection enabled as part of the £3.7m project could create a major boost for business and tourism.
