High speed learning for pupils

St. Cuthbert’s Primary School, Maybole had a visit last week from the Digital Scotland Bus, and learned lots of interesting facts about Superfast Broadband. Pupils learned how hundreds of thousands of people can get high speed internet access.

This allows people to play games, watch movies, work and communicate via the internet with ease.

The new high speed fibre cables are made with plastic-coated glass and provide a broadband much faster than the original old paper-coated copper wires!

The original broadband (www.) started in 1991 and by 2017 it is hoped that fibre broadband will reach 95% of homes in Scotland.
