Thousands of residents in the Welsh coastal town of Tenby were hit by a broadband outage earlier in the week.

Not only were homes in the idyllic south Pembrokeshire location deprived of their high-speed internet services, but several firms were also hit, reports the Western Telegraph.

Around 7,000 broadband users are said to have been affected by the eight-hour problem, which occurred through Monday (January 6th) morning and afternoon.

BT spokesman Jason Mann told the newspaper: "We worked as swiftly as possible to restore services.

"Although the majority of users who could not access their connection were in Carmarthenshire, there were a number in the Tenby area who also had problems."

Several so-called not-spots in Wales recently had their internet connections brought up to speed with the installation of broadband as part of a number of projects undertaken by the Assembly government's Regional Innovative Broadband Support and BT.
