5:00pm Saturday 19th April 2014 in News
FAST fibre broadband is now available for the very first time in Haverfordwest, thanks to Superfast Cymru.
The first households and businesses are now able to access fast fibre broadband which enables businesses to work faster and more efficiently, benefitting from faster upload and download speeds and reducing the need to travel.
Superfast Cymru said it would also help create jobs and expand businesses.
At home it is not just about a faster internet experience but means people will also be able to do their own thing online, all at the same time, including streaming films or downloading music.
Deputy Minister for Skills and Technology, Ken Skates, said: “I am delighted that parts of Pembrokeshire are now able to access fast fibre broadband for the very first time thanks to Superfast Cymru. Superfast fibre broadband has the power to transform the way we do business, the way we keep in touch, how we access entertainment and how we use public services.
“The Superfast Cymru programme is probably the most ambitious in the UK. We aim to reach 96% of properties by the end of Spring 2016 making fibre available to more people more quickly than the rest of the UK. The residents and businesses in Haverfordwest are the latest to benefit. "
Households and businesses which want to take advantage of the benefits of fast fibre broadband should contact an internet service provider (ISP) of their choice to place an order.
Information about the roll-out is published on the Superfast Cymru website (www.superfast-cymru.com) including a coverage map which provides details of roll-out plans looking approximately 12 months ahead.
Areas such as Neyland, Johnston and Milford Haven will be upgraded during the next stage, starting this summer.
