The Welsh government is to press BT on its timescale for providing fibre-optic broadband to the region.

According to the Western Telegraph, Welsh Assembly joint-deputy leader John Allen-Mirehouse believes the now-redundant Angle to Llarndarcy pipeline could be used to supply broadband.

The Welsh Assembly is now expected to quiz BT on why the infrastructure has not been put in place as a basis to build a next-generation network.

According to the publication: "BT are to be asked to clarify the extent of local 'not spots' as well as the number of line contractors and how their investment programme might help to address the country's business and wider community needs."

Whitchurch in South Glamorgan, Wales, was recently chosen by BT as one of the locations in which to run a fibre-optic broadband pilot scheme.
