As Bangor becomes the first place in Wales to get high speed fibre broadband as part of the multi-million pound Superfast Cymru project, UK and Welsh Ministers have been explaining how the programme will be rolled out to 96% of Welsh homes and businesses by the end of 2015.
Engineers will ultimately lay around 17,500 kilometres of optical fibre cable and install around 3,000 new fibre broadband cabinets in streets the length and breadth of Wales. The project is mostly a commercial investment by BT but with contributions from both the Welsh and UK governments.
- BT £220 million
- Welsh Government £58 million
- UK Government £57 million
The Welsh Government is also securing European Aid for the project, which will eventually take total investment in Welsh fibre broadband to around £425 million. As well as Bangor, the first places to benefit will be Caernarfon, Dolgellau, Menai Bridge, Porthmadog, Pwllheli, Ebbw Vale and Tredegar.
– Welsh Government Business Minister Edwina Hart AM
Today is an important milestone in delivering our commitment to ensure properties across Wales have access to next-generation broadband. Superfast Cymru will transform the broadband landscape across Wales, making the country one of the most connected countries in Europe. High-speed broadband is essential to ensure residential properties to access the services and opportunities provided by digital technologies.
– UK Communications Minister Ed Vaizey MP
This represents the dawn of a new age for superfast broadband in Wales. The UK Government has invested £57 million pounds in the Superfast Cymru project which will deliver fibre based broadband to 96% of homes and businesses in Wales by the end of 2015. The project will also create an estimated 2,500 full time jobs, and is a reminder of the massive contribution to economic growth that the Government's nationwide roll-out of broadband continues to make.
– Wales Office Minister Stephen Crabb MP
Today’s announcement marks a crucial landmark in our aims to improve broadband connectivity in Wales. By having access to ultrafast broadband, businesses can expand, develop new markets, create the jobs we need and compete with others around the world. It also allows local communities in the most rural areas of Wales to access public services more quickly and efficiently online. Providing high quality internet access is fundamental to the growth of our economy and the Government is doing all it can to ensure that the UK has a broadband network fit for the digital age.
