BT is set to bring high-speed broadband to a number of rural towns and villages in Wales, it has been reported.

The locations are set to receive ADSL2+ broadband services - which use advanced copper wire solutions, reportsISPreview.co.uk.

BT is aiming to ensure that 90 per cent of the UK population has access to ADSL+ broadband at least by spring 2013.

Among the communities set to benefit are Menai Bridge, Rhos on Sea, Cardigan, Aberystwyth, Denbigh, Ruthin, Milford Haven and Blaenavon.

In total, around 130,000 homes and businesses stand to benefit from the rollout programme.

BT is also in the process of upgrading telephone exchanges around the UK to support fibre broadband services.

The firm is investing £2.5 billion rolling out super-fast, next-generation broadband around the UK.
