North Wales fibre project is a success

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

A North Wales next generation broadband network, which was built using a 200 mile cable link from Manchester, has been hailed a complete success since its launch almost twelve months ago.

The project was not cheap, in fact the estimated cost was £30 million to set the network up.

This was done with help from the Welsh Assembly Government as well as from the Regional Development Agencies.

So far there are around one thousand customers using the FibreSpeed broadband service.

This just shows how small projects can get areas connected to the broadband network, but one concern has to be the cost, as £30 million to provide a thousand homes with broadband seems a little steep.

According to the competition partner at the regulator Ofcom, Stuart McIntosh, next gen broadband is a world changing issue!
