The Welsh Government scheme Superfast Cymru is aiming to encourage and highlight the benefits of superfast broadband in the Vale of Glamorgan. It is wishing to demonstrate and promote the benefits with the hope that further users gain access to the service across the county.
According to Business News Wales, the majority of residents in the Vale of Glamorgan now have the ability to access the service and the campaign will showcase how superfast broadband is transforming the way people work, learn and connect with their families and friends.
“Superfast broadband enables multiple devices to work simultaneously, allowing people to stream films, download music, study or keep in touch with loved ones without disrupting a connection.The campaign will highlight how the service is transforming the ways in which people live and work across Wales.”
Welsh Government Leader of the House Julie James said:
“Superfast broadband has become crucial for homes, which is why we are committed to bringing faster internet speeds to regions across Wales. Improving our digital infrastructure is key to driving economic growth, supporting public services and helping people communicate.
While the majority of homes in the Vale of Glamorgan can now access superfast broadband should they wish to, many people are simply not fully aware of its benefits or how it can be accessed. Faster broadband speeds are enabling families and individuals to carry out their activities with greater speed and efficiency than ever before, and on multiple devices. This includes activities such as downloading large learning resources for children, managing bank accounts, shopping for groceries, paying household bills or using video services such as Skype – to name a few.
For home-workers, the service increases efficiency, boosts productivity and optimises delivery. Being able to communicate via high definition video conferencing or Skype enables companies to speak with staff, customers and suppliers from anywhere in the world.
We want as many people as possible to realise these benefits, and this campaign aims to showcase how the technology is impacting thousands of lives in communities across Wales.”
Airefibre and Ultra-fast Broadband
We are committed to help drive fast internet access for all in Wales. Whilst we are still covering Cardiff and the surrounding area at this present moment, our engineers are working closely with partners, councils, landowners and others to start broadcasting ultra-fast broadband to rural areas.
We also recently partnered up with the Radisson Blu in the centre of Cardiff, meaning our transmitters are now on top of their 63 Metre tower, giving us a wider reach not only in the city but also in a 30 mile radius.
Our technology is different in the way that we can beam high speed internet direct to your premises at speeds of up to 200 Mbps download and upload, compared to the standard connection which is up to 30 Mbps. We’re a Welsh business leading a technology revolution in Wales. Let’s work together.
