£3m broadband boost for Welsh businesses

Businesses in Wales can look forward to improved broadband coverage as bidding has opened for £1m-£3m worth of contracts to provide for areas not covered by Superfast Cymru.

According to the article: "Superfast Cymru intends to connect 96 percent of the Welsh population, or 690,000 premises, with fibre by 2016 and is the largest public-private broadband partnership in the UK with £425 million in funding.

"The tender issued by the Welsh government says it is unlikely that Superfast Cymru will deliver 100 percent coverage due to a number of 'BT-reported issues in some locations'."
