Students win $20,000 for broadband plans

A competition designed to get young people thinking about the benefits of ultra-fast broadband has netted ten students $2000 each. A $1.35 billion government initiative will see 75 per cent of New Zealanders connected to ultra-fast broadband (UFB) by 2020. In light of this, Telecom has just run its first 'Amazing Ideas Search', asking school students to suggest ways that UFB will improve their lives.
