Wales' first mobile network set to launch at Royal Welsh Show

A Welsh business will turn on the first full-scale mobile telecommunications network for people who live and work in Wales at the Royal Welsh Show today.

Newport-based RWG Mobile has been working over the last 12 months to create a "virtual" network that smartphone and tablet users can access via an app.

The network has been created by Andrew Davies from the Rhondda and will initially be launched as an app that can be downloaded to both Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.
