Benefits of Superfast Cymru programme revealed
Businesses and residents across Wales are benefiting from improved broadband connectivity as part of ongoing efforts from the Superfast Cymru project.

The Penarth Times reports the scheme forms an integral part of the Welsh Assembly Government's aims of delivering superfast broadband services to 96 per cent of premises across the country by spring next year.

It is an initiative being delivered in partnership between central government - both in Wales and Westminster - the European Union and network operator BT, with the £425 million project having so far witnessed the installation of more than 2,150 km of fibre optic cable and more than 3,200 roadside cabinets.

Overall, the benefits of improved connectivity will be felt by the vast majority of Welsh communities in the years ahead, with homes and businesses able to achieve significantly faster data transfer rates that will provide a boost to local economies and people's lives.
