Broadband customers in Wales are getting a "raw deal" in terms of their access to internet, a UK minister has admitted.

Speaking to BBC Wales, Sion Simon said that the country was included in the UK government's commitment to rollout universal broadband of at least 2Mb by 2012.

However, the creative industries minister said that a lot of work remains to be done if broadband coverage is to be extended to the most rural parts of Wales.

He was quoted by the news provider as saying: "You are right that Wales currently gets a raw deal from commercially provided broadband.

"The commitment is for universal broadband at a minimum of 2Mb across the UK by 2012."

Earlier this week, te Sunday Times compiled research indicating that broadband prices can vary drastically for the same service depending on where a person lives.
