BRECON and Radnorshire MP Chris Davies has called on the Welsh Government to sort their act out over superfast broadband delays in Wales. As it was revealed that almost 90,000 homes have had delays to connect them with high speed internet across Wales.

Rural broadband has been one of Chris Davies MPs biggest campaigns since becoming MP for Brecon and Radnorshire in 2015. He has constantly met and lobbied various organisations to ensure rural Wales is not left behind by the broadband rollout.

Chris Davies MP said:

“To many in rural Wales it feels as though we are being left behind when it comes to being provided with superfast and high internet access. Brecon and Radnorshire has seen big improvements in recent years with 4G and internet access to our larger towns and villages.

"However, I have been informed by various providers that rural areas are being connected after urbanised areas, as they are seen as low hanging fruit compared with our rural communities.

"Providing rural Broadband to Wales is the role of the Welsh Government and they are not providing the people of Wales with what they deserve quickly enough. One of my offices biggest workloads is complaints about decent internet access for rural residing constituents.

"I am calling on the Welsh Government and our Assembly Member who is part of the Labour/Liberal coalition to step up and put providing rural dwellers with high speed internet at the top of their agenda. Rural Wales deserves internet access fit for the 21st century.”
