success story

Thanks to La Fibre Paloise (LFP), a public-initiative network and subsidiary of Axione, students benefit from an optimal connection to the WiFi network in CROUS (Centre Régional des Œuvres Universitaires et Scolaires – “regional centres of French national student services”) universityresidences.

The city of Pau is ranked 3rd of the student cities “where life is good” among France’s medium-sized cities*. It is also in Pau that La Fibre Paloise, a subsidiary of Axione, connected seven CROUS university residences to fibre – all in different parts of the city. This operation ensures access to super-fast connections for students on campus.

Each building has a fibre link that allows several hundred students to connect to the WiFi network.

The use of super-fast broadband is therefore ideal for living student life in Pau to the full; optimal studying comfort, leisure activities, and the ability to stay in touch with loved ones with video calls.

“This project demonstrates our ability to combine the needs of a region with those of users, allowing them to remain permanently connected to those around them: friends, family, and classmates.”

Philippe Gradinac, Connected Regions Project Manager for La Fibre Paloise (LFP).
