Residents in a Welsh village have threatened to take BT to court to resolve a long-standing broadband dispute.

Those living in Gwytherin, near Llangernyw in Conwy, have had connection problems with both broadband and phone services for a number of years and the residents are reportedly worried that communication failures could thwart emergency calls.

Emlyn Williams, 60, told the Daily Post: "This has run for years now and still they are not fulfilling their service, it is forcing villagers to become more militant to force them to act on this because they have been dragging their feet."

A group of villagers are now drawing up plans to launch a court summons in the small claims court to force a resolution on the issue.

BT spokesperson Paul Hayward said that the company is working with Assembly Members and the community to find a solution.

Elsewhere in Wales, the Tivy-Side Advertiser reports that Plaid Cymru's Elin Jones met recently with First Minister, Ieuan Wyn Jones to discuss the issue of broadband 'not-spots' in Ceredigion.
