Welsh Government: We are working to make Wales 'one of the most connected countries in the world'

A street in Wales and another in Essex have been declared the slowest in the UK for broadband speeds in a new report.

The research, carried out by online comparison site, found Erw Fawr in Henryd, Conwy had an average download speed of 0.60 megabytes per second - 30 times slower than the UK national average.

Two other Welsh streets also made it on to the list of the slowest in the UK.

The good news is that Erw Fawr in Henryd, Conwy is included in our roll-out plans to receive fast fibre broadband under the Superfast Cymru programme.

Superfast Cymru, a partnership between the Welsh Government and BT, is the largest of its kind in the UK. It is working to achieve, when combined with commercial roll-outs, the Welsh Government's aim of providing 96% of premises in Wales with access to fast fibre broadband by the end of Spring 2016.
