Superfast Cymru and BT Bring 330Mbps FTTP Broadband to Nasareth

The state aid supported Superfast Cymru project with BT has today announced that their ultrafast 330Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network has been made available to premises in the village of Nasareth (Gwynedd). The one in Wales, of course, and NOT the childhood home of Jesus.

So far the project has helped to roll-out “high-speed fibre broadband” to more than 530,000 homes and businesses across Wales, although most of that has been done via BTOpenreach’s slower ‘up to’ 80Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) technology.

By comparison FTTP takes the fibre optic cable right up to your property, which costs more and takes longer to deploy, but it does deliver stable speeds of around 300Mbps; possibly rising to 1Gbps in the near future. Some 45,500 of the above project total have also been delivered in Gwynedd alone.

Ed Hunt, Superfast Cymru Programme Director, said:

It seems tremendously appropriate that a community with the name of Nasareth gets superfast broadband at Christmastime!

The hamlet has joined the ever growing list of rural communities in Wales that can now start accessing superfast broadband.

As the roll-out continues we will see more and more communities, like Nasareth, being able to realise the many benefits of receiving superfast broadband speeds.

For those households and businesses that can access superfast broadband, I would urge them to sign up with a service provider – why not make it your new year’s resolution?

End.

    Can you change your town/village name by deed poll? Sounds like the easiest way to get decent internet connectivity these days!

    Could try changing it to Kansas City, Austin or Provo and hope Google get very, very confused I guess.
