Broadband boost for Wrexham Industrial Estate
Residents of one of the largest industrial estates in Europe - Wrexham Industrial Estate in north-east Wales - are to benefit from the rollout of new superfast broadband connectivity.

A new fibre optic connection is being installed at the estate in the coming weeks, with the first roadside cabinets now ready to be put in place by network operator BT.

Chairman of the Wrexham Economic Forum Tom Bunce told BBC News the more than 400 businesses that reside at the industrial estate have felt the difficulties of slow download rates and poor connectivity up to now, so demand in the area for this new service is certainly there.

He commented: "Any improvement which will enable faster and more stable internet access for our businesses is welcomed. BT's high speed fibre broadband can't come soon enough."

The installation has been made possible through the ongoing Superfast Cymru project - a multi-million pound partnership between BT and the Welsh Assembly Government.
