MP backs village's campaign to secure broadband services as residents still languish with snail-paced dial-up connections.

A Welsh village's campaign for broadband services has been taken up by both a Welsh Assembly member and a member of parliament.

Rhodri Glyn Thomas AM and Adam Price MP have taken the step of contacting BT in relation to the lack of high-speed internet access in Cilycwm, reports the South Wales Echo.

The two representatives have asked for an action plan as well as a time scale for when residents can expect to enjoy the advantages of the best broadband.

Mr Price told the newspaper: "It is unacceptable that areas like Cilycwm are being left out of the loop whilst other parts of Wales are being provided for.

"Hopefully a solution can be found and broadband can be provided for the village."

The Welsh Assembly government has committed itself to addressing broadband blackspots and work began by BT to connect the Denbighshire village Gwytherin in north Wales with line upgrades taking place.
