Royal Cornwall Showground launches superfast broadband wi-fi on site
The arrival of superfast broadband at the Royal Cornwall Showground will boost its attractiveness as a location for hosting events, according to the association that runs it.
The Royal Agricultural Association says the introduction of high-speed wi-fi will increase the popularity of the venue's popular pavilion centre, as well as events hosted in other areas of the showground. The rural showground was one of many locations in the Wadebridge area recently connected to fibre optic broadband.
Show secretary Chris Riddle said he expected it to boost the business at the pavilion centre which hosts around 180 meetings, conferences, events, weddings and parties each year. He said: "In the past, our broadband service has been slow at the best of times, so our new connection is a vital improvement.
"We have a great venue, centrally located in a lovely rural setting. Now we can offer visitors the reliable, fast wi-fi they desperately require for their events. This will especially come in handy when the venue acts as the members' pavilion for over 6,000 people during our annual Royal Cornwall Show."
