The ‘Next Generation Broadband Wales’ programme, known as Superfast Cymru, was established to extend superfast coverage to those areas not covered by commercial roll-out.
This is the latest release
The programme was funded from the 2007-13 ERDF programmes in the Convergence and Competitive regions of Wales (£90 million), the Welsh Government (£59 million), and Broadband Delivery UK (£57 million). A further £52 million of private investment was committed by BT, the selected commercial delivery partner.
The evaluation included:
- surveys of enterprises and households (covering those that had and had not adopted superfast broadband)
- consultations with partners and stakeholders involved in the programme
- the development of an impact model to estimate the net economic, social and environmental impacts of the programme.
Primary research was also undertaken with apprentices.
