Through the Superfast Cymru project we are bringing access to high speed broadband to the majority of homes and businesses in Wales that cannot get it through the private sector’s own commercial programmes. We are delivering this access with funding from ourselves, the UK Government, European Union through the European Regional Development Fund and BT.
The project is providing superfast broadband to areas without commercial rollouts. These are areas that telecoms companies have decided aren’t economical to rollout to. This covers over half of all premises in Wales.
So far we have provided access to over 621,000 premises in Wales. These wouldn’t have received a superfast connection without the project.
We are also working with Airband to provide high speed wireless broadband to business premises in business parks and industrial estates that aren’t part of the Superfast Cymru or commercial rollout.
