More than 44,000 homes and businesses across Wales are benefiting from improved connectivity thanks to the Welsh Government’s rollout of fast full fibre broadband.
In partnership with Openreach, the four-year project, which has now completed, has given access to full fibre connectivity to thousands more properties than the original target of 39,000.
The rollout, which has come in under its original budget of £57 million, was thanks to Welsh Government and EU funding, investment from Openreach and support from the UK Government.
As people and businesses across Wales move towards increasingly digital lives and workplaces, the improved connectivity builds on the success of Superfast Cymru which more than doubled availability of fast broadband.
All properties that have benefitted can now access future proofed ‘fibre to the premises’ technology, which can deliver gigabit capable speeds allowing for faster downloads and smoother streaming.
