Super-fast broadband boost for Cornwall students
Students in Cornwall are enjoying the benefits of fibre optic broadband access, which has been rolled out thanks to a public-private partnership between the county council, BT and the EU.

The project, named Superfast Cornwall, has been working with Falmouth University 3D design student Cory Stager to assess how the technology could improve home and work life for him and the five other students he lives with, reports the West Briton.

Mr Stager said he and his housemates have found fibre broadband to be a huge help. Before gaining access to the service, he was forced to sit very close to his router to get any kind of internet connection and had to wait "about five minutes" to load a webpage.

Now that super-fast broadband has been installed, the students are able to go anywhere in their house and still enjoy a high-quality service.

"It means we can work together all on different laptops and simultaneously search the web for what we need," Mr Stager explained.
