Broadband Improvements for Wrexham and Calder Valley

Posted: 14th Nov, 2008 By: MarkJ
The Hebden Times reports that a crucial meeting next Wednesday in Hebden Bridge could approve plans for a new fibre optic broadband service in the Calder Valley. The community network, if approved, would replace existing copper piping with “fiberlass” cables:

Robert Currey, a software developer whom will head next weeks meeting, said: "Our valley is in danger of being left behind left behind big cities such as Manchester and Leeds - the only places likely to get this technology from the big phone companies."

In related news the Welsh Daily Post has reported on calls for the expansion of Wrexham's broadband reach to include Llay Industrial Estate. Presently the network only covers Wrexham's Industrial Estate and Technology Park.

The FibreSpeed network, which is now being installed across North Wales, will connect business parks, industrial estates and other locations across six counties. Lesley Griffiths AM is leading the charge with a letter to the Welsh Assembly Government:

Lesley Griffiths said: “I hope the Minister will respond positively as there are dozens of companies on the estate in Llay – companies which could all benefit from being connected to FibreSpeed.”

To date the Welsh Assembly government has made a £30 million investment in the FibreSpeed project for North Wales.
