First Xwavia Wireless Broadband Customers Go Live in Conwy, Wales

Thursday, August 21st, 2014 (3:45 pm) - Score 473

Welsh Wireless ISP Xwavia has today announced that the first residential and business customers in Conwy have been connected to their new superfast broadband network, which offers Internet speeds from 10Mbps to 1000Mbps (Megabits per second).

The network in Conwy, which was first announced back in June 2014 (here), came after the ISP secured an additional public investment of £1.2 million from Finance Wales (here). Locals in the area had previously been forced to suffer speeds of just 0.5Mbps via existing fixed line broadband services.

Dafydd Thomas, CEO of Xwavia, said:

We are delighted to announce our first residents and businesses to go live with superfast broadband in Conwy.

Currently, many residents and business owners do not have access to high speed broadband and this is negatively effecting the Welsh economy. Over the next three years, we will extend our network across Wales to provide much-needed access to superfast broadband.

Alongside connecting families across the globe, an increasing number of small to medium businesses are now becoming aware that access to superfast broadband technology can help them improve their business processes and attain a competitive advantage.”

Sadly the ISP has doesn’t mention their full package details and prices, although it is known that the entry-level 5Mbps option for home users comes alongside an 18 month contract and costs from £16.99 per month. Xwavia also makes use of the Welsh Government‘s revised Access Broadband Cymru (ABC) scheme, which provides grants worth up to £1,000 per premise in areas which have “slow broadband connections” (i.e. sub-2Mbps).
