Welsh Broadband Take-up Climbs

Posted: 12th Oct, 2006 By: MarkJ
ADSLGuide has spotted an interesting item on NewsWales, which states that Welsh broadband take-up has grown from 39% in 2005 to 43% now:

The survey of 5,500 residents across 22 Local Authorities revealed that Anglesey is the most improved county, with broadband take-up in the area increasing by an impressive 38% in the last year (29% to 40%). Powys (30% increase) and Wrexham (27% increase) followed, with 39% and 42% of the population now with broadband.

Cardiff - one of Europe’s most enabled cities - has been toppled from the number one position as the most broadband enabled county, with Newport taking the lead thanks to the 51% of its residents now subscribed to a broadband service. Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan closely follow on 50%.

As well as being better connected, the research also shows that Wales is getting faster, with 26% of those surveyed having connection speeds faster that 1Mb, in order to support such advanced applications as videoconferencing, gaming and music downloads.
