We want everyone to be able to access superfast broadband. This is key for Wales to become a truly digital nation.
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.
Extent of the rollout
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 590,000 premises in Wales. Tehse wouldn’t have received a superfast connection without the project.
We are working with Airband to provide high speed wireless broadband to business premises. These are premises in business parks and industrial estates that aren’t part of the Superfast Cymru or commercial rollout.
Rolling out high speed broadband across Wales is a huge engineering task. We will be deploying around 3000 new fibre broadband cabinets to bring superfast broadband to Wales. We will also be using a mix of technologies to reach the final few percent of premises where fibre is not currently planned to be rolled out.
We can help you to understand, adopt and exploit the business opportunities presented by the rollout of superfast broadband across Wales. Visit our dedicated Superfast Business Wales website (external link).
