Computer Use Increase

31 January, 2014

Computer use in Blaenau Gwent has experienced a significant increase since the launch of ‘Get Blaenau Gwent Online’ in April 2013. Libraries in the county borough are experiencing an increased demand for basic IT support. With more and more services becoming ‘digital by default’ the demand has increased by 26% which is directly attributable to the success of the Get Blaenau Gwent Online initiative.

Superfast Cymru

31 July, 2013

Residents and Businesses in Blaenau Gwent will be amongst the first in Wales to benefit from the pioneering multimillion pound programme Superfast Cymru, to bring nationwide fibre broadband to Wales. Fibre broadband is the next generation of broadband - much faster, more reliable and it uses a different technology. Whilst traditional broadband is delivered via copper telephone lines, fibre broadband uses fibre optic cable. This will have the power to transform the life, work and play of citizens across Blaenau Gwent.

Digital Camera Walk

31 July, 2013

In July 2013 Get Blaenau Gwent Online supported by Communities 2.0 outreach worker Laura Howe ran a number of Digital Camera Walks in conjunction with Communities First in Abertillery & Llanhilleth. The walking group, who have recently become constituted, meet regularly for walks in different locations around Blaenau Gwent. Outreach worker Laura thought it would be fun to incorporate a spot of photography into the walk. Everyone picked a word and were encouraged to take photos that reflected that word.
