Welsh Government investment in next generation broadband infrastructure
27 May 2015

The Auditor General has today reported that the Welsh Government’s Superfast Cymru contract, signed with BT in 2012 and supported by up to £205 million of public funding, is ‘making reasonable progress’ in rolling out access to next generation broadband services. 

The contract aims to provide access for around 700,000 premises across Wales where there is no planned commercial rollout. Work to promote exploitation of the benefits of this and other investment in next generation broadband infrastructure is now under way.
The report, which focuses on various aspects of the Superfast Cymru agreement and its delivery, found that the Welsh Government is now expecting all business and residential premises to be able to access next generation broadband services by the end of 2016.
