Firms in north Wales are clamouring for a part of a new fibre-optic broadband network set to be rolled out across the region.

The FibreSpeed development will reach businesses in six counties, but there are some companies that are still fearful of being left out of loop.

There are calls to make sure that the Llay Industrial Estate near Wrexham is included in the plans, with one member of the Welsh Assembly lobbying the minister for the economy and transport.

Speaking to the Daily Post, Lesley Evans said of the correspondence he sent to Ieuan Wyn Jones: "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."

FibreSpeed is the result of a £30 million investment by the Welsh Assembly government, intended to bring a projected £29 million extra a year to the country's economy.
