It appears that the competition to provide a fast rural broadband service to parts of Anglesey is hotting up. Only a few weeks ago a company called Bluenowhere released a fibre broadband roll out plan. Now another company called i3 group have also announced plans to create a fibre network for home and commercial users on Anglesey.
According to the companies’ web site …
“This is your opportunity to enjoy the benefits of high speed broadband across the whole of Anglesey. An opportunity to get better connectivity, forget 0.5mbps or less, you get 10MBs and the freedom to enjoy all that next generation access can deliver.
Fibrezone™ is working with Carrier Wales to deliver this connection over the coming months for you to benefit right away.”
The project will make use of the fibre backbone announced for North Wales almost two years ago. An initial trial connecting 300 homes in Aberffraw, Llanfair-yn-Neubwll and Bryngwran will see the service delivery handled by Carrier Wales. Businesses and residents in the area will be informed once the trial is available
For such a long time rural areas have been hampered by slow broadband, new radio and fibre solutions may finally mean the dream of fast broadband for all on Anglesey may soon become a reality.
