Information and Communication Technology infrastructure policy
We want Wales to be one of the best connected countries in Europe by 2016.
We seek to ensure that people and businesses in Wales access the best broadband in Europe in the following ways:
First Generation Broadband
We are working to ensure that individuals, businesses and communities located in broadband notspots, are able to quickly get access to the broadband they need.
Our Broadband Support Scheme provides financial assistance of up to £1,000 to help individuals, communities, Small and Medium sized Enterprises and 3rd sector organisations obtain a broadband connection.
Next Generation Broadband / Superfast Cymru
As part of the Programme for Government, we are seeking to ensure that residential premises and businesses in Wales will have access to Next Generation Broadband by 2016. For more information visit www.superfast-cymru.com
Providing a first class digital infrastructure is a key feature of the Delivering a Digital Wales strategic framework, aimed at making Wales a truly digital nation.
We are working with the mobile industry, Ofcom and UK Government to improve mobile coverage across Wales. A key focus of this work is to ensure that Wales benefits from the UK Government’s Mobile Infrastructure Project, a £150 million investment, to address mobile notspots.
We are also working with the Mobile Operators following the 4G spectrum auction. The licence which was awarded to Téléfonica O2 carries a coverage obligation of at least 95% of the population in Wales by the end of 2017.
We are investigating options to improve mobile coverage across Wales, including mobile services across the rail network.
