On September 7th, Vale AM Jane Hutt met BT Wales Director Alwen Williams to discuss superfast broadband coverage in the Vale of Glamorgan.
Jane was pleased to see the latest figures showing over 90% of the constituency now has superfast coverage, and Wales is ahead of Scotland and Northern Ireland in terms of rollout. Jane said:
“Through the Superfast Cymru project, the Welsh Government is committed to making Wales a truly digital nation, and ensuring that everyone has access to high speed broadband. We are delivering this access with funding from ourselves, the UK Government, the European Union and BT. Rolling out high speed broadband across Wales is a multimillion pound, huge engineering task but I was pleased to hear from BT about the immense speed of build in Wales and the 90% superfast coverage in the Vale of Glamorgan to date. As well as following up queries from individual constituents across the Vale, I have been working with residents in Ystradowen and St Mary Church. BT Cymru is confirming timelines in these areas”
