By the end of 2015, 96% of homes and businesses in Wales are expected to be able to access high-speed fibre broadband as a result of a £425m project (when BT’s commercial investment in Wales is also taken into account). The very first premises are expected to go live by spring 2013.
Total public sector investment is £205m, which includes £56.9m from BDUK, £89.5m from European ERDF funding and £58.6m from the Welsh Government. BT’s total commitment is £220m.
