More roll-out information now on the Superfast Cymru website
The level of information on the Superfast Cymru website is improving, as details of the better broadband coverage for Wales via the project are added to the site.
There is now a simple map, showing the various exchange areas, and details of what is happening, e.g. Aberdovey should start to see the super-fast broadband deployment start in September 2013, where as Aberystwyth is still in the planning stages. For the other exchanges that are outside the commercial footprint and not shown we presume that as planning starts their information will update. A postcode and telephone number checker is also available.
For those who live in Mid and North Wales based on our the analysis of results from our speed tester these areas appear to hold two of the slowest postcode areas (LL & SY) in the UK, thus improvements to bring the average up from 5 to 5.5Mbps to something like the 15 Mbps and faster that the best UK postcodes enjoy should be a welcome boost to both consumers and businesses.
