The village of Cwmdu is celebrating after BT announced it would carry out work to allow broadband access for residents.

Local member of parliament Adam Price and Welsh Assembly member Glyn Thomas had been at the forefront of the attempts made to lobby BT to provide broadband internet access for the area.

Although high-speed internet services will not be available to every Cwmdu resident, the situation will be improved for many.

Speaking to the South Wales Guardian, Mr Price said: "We have spent a great deal of time highlighting our concerns with the Assembly and BT and are delighted that the line concentrator has now been removed.

"This should now provide access to residents wishing to receive broadband in the area who have been affected by this piece of technology."

North Wales has already launched its own super-fast broadband network - the £30 million Fibrespeed network uses over 200 miles of fibre-optic cable.
