Several communities in west Wales which had been previously been deprived of broadband services will be connected, it has been announced.
The Welsh Assembly Government has named six so-called not-spots which will see their internet connection upgraded.
This is alongside five other sites in the west Wales region which will also reap the benefits of broadband.
"It is vitally important that businesses and families have good access to broadband in all parts of Wales," said deputy first minister Ieuan Wyn Jones.
He continued: "We are working hard to assess the exact scale of the problem and how best to solve it and todays announcement demonstrates a commitment to getting the job done."
The Welsh Assembly has set up the Regional Innovative Broadband Support project in conjunction with BT to carry out the work.
