The firm behind a new fibre-optic broadband network in Wales claims that more and more businesses are signing up for the service.

FibreSpeed, which has a 200-mile fibre-optic broadband network across north Wales between Holyhead and Wrexham, said there has been a "good initial take-up" of the service, reports the Daily Post.

The firm is aiming to transform business in the area with the broadband offering and estimates the network could bring £29 million annually into north Wales over the next ten years.

Richard Forde-Johnston, business development and relationship manager of FibreSpeed, told the newspaper he was "delighted at the number of quality connections over this summer".

He added that food packaging manufacturer Excelsior Technologies was the latest firm to sign up for the broadband network.

"Excelsior's new Deeside site, for example, will contribute to their multi-million pound US Bird's Eye contract and is a superb example of FibreSpeed delivering on its objectives and keeping jobs and business investment in Wales," he said.

Stewart Nicol, Chief Executive of the Inverness Chamber of Commerce, recently told the Inverness Courier that access to fast broadband is critical for businesses.
