Superfast broadband

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 Superfast Cymru project covers the vast majority of premises that were not planned as part of commercial programmes. We are also working with Airband to provide high speed wireless broadband to premises in business parks and industrial estates that cannot get broadband as part of the Superfast Cymru rollout.  

Challenges

Bringing high speed broadband to rural areas 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.

Supporting businesses

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).
