Fibre optic broadband trial to take place in Anglesey
North Wales has been chosen as the location for a new fibre optic broadband trial to be conducted by the i3 Group.

The initiative will make use of fibre optic and secure wireless technology to bring high-speed home broadband to the Isle of Anglesey, the communications provider explained.

It will benefit residences in the area that currently have limited or no access to the web.

Chief executive of the i3 Group Elfed Thomas claimed the issue of connecting rural properties to broadband is a "real challenge" for the telecoms industry, adding that the company has been working on this solution for some time.

Mr Thomas went on to state that the infrastructure should prove to be "commercially viable with some support from the public purse".

In summer 2010, the company announced the launch of its fibre optic network in Dundee, which is capable of delivering download speeds of up to 100Mb/s to businesses and homes in the city.
