A turning point at the beginning of the 21st century ?

To appeal to retired persons and to attract future generations, in addition to our lush forests and our pleasant countryside which can favour the simple life, we have ADSL since November 2008. Saint Géraud de Corps is the first commune in Aquitaine to be equipped with a NRAZO (a connection node in a remote region) to provide broadband coverage for its territory.
