Cheers! Redruth Brewery celebrates new broadband milestone
Redruth Brewery in Redruth was founded by William Davey in
1742 when the town was the centre of the world copper and
tin mining industry. Demand for the company's bottled
ales and lagers is growing at more than ten per cent a year.
About 20 per cent of the bottled products are exported to
Hong Kong and other parts of South East Asia.
The actnow programme is a demand-led initiative
to encourage businesses in Cornwall to gain the support they
need to move into the new broadband economy. Including about
£5.25 million from Objective One, it is one of the largest
private and public sector partnerships in Cornwall since the
county was granted Objective One status by the European Union
in 2000. Partners include BT, the Objective One Partnership
Office, Cornwall Enterprise, the South West of England Regional
Development Agency, Cornwall County Council, Business Link
Devon & Cornwall and Cornwall College.
ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) broadband transforms
the pair of copper wires between a local telephone exchange
and the customer's telephone socket into a high speed
