Packed superfast broadband Meeting in Ystradowen with Jane Hutt AM and Superfast Cymru’s Martin Jones
Vale AM Jane Hutt invited Martin Jones of Superfast Cymru to Ystradowen Village Hall to discuss plans for superfast broadband implementation for the village and surrounding areas.
Local resident Graham Roberts welcomed everyone to the packed meeting of more than 60 residents, who raised questions and concerns about the current and future timelines and prospects for improving this vital broadband infrastructure. The village includes many home-based businesses as well as daily personal and household needs.
Residents were assured that planning was now underway for superfast broadband connections direct to households, due to be delivered by March 2017, and volunteers came forward to form a community group to liaise with Superfast Cymru as the plans roll out.
