Superfast Cymru scheme kicks off in North Wales
THE start of the first phase of the Welsh Government's Superfast Cymru broadband scheme was put in place today.
The project, a partnership with BT, will take fibre broadband the length and breadth of Wales, to areas not covered by the private sector's commercial plans.
Business Minister Edwina Hart unveiled the first new fibre broadband cabinet.
It was installed in High Street, Bangor and will serve hundreds of homes and businesses in the area. The first of those could be reaping the benefits as early as the spring.

Further cabinets are now also been installed in other parts of the city as the rollout gathers pace. Engineers will ultimately lay around 17,500 kilometres of optical fibre cable and install around 3,000 new fibre broadband cabinets in streets the length and breadth of Wales.
Mrs Hart said: "Today is an important milestone in delivering our commitment to ensure properties across Wales have access to next-generation broadband."
The scheme will be rolled out to other parts of Wales in the future.
