A new scheme to cut the number of rural areas in Wales without broadband will be launched in the summer, the country's government has revealed.

According to a spokesperson, a new grant scheme is to be launched which will complement current work by BT to provide broadband access to remote communities across the country.

Talking to the Caernarfon Herald, the source said the new scheme will ensure people have "greater control" over the broadband solutions they receive.

"We recognise it is vital in the 21st century for people in all parts of Wales to gain access to a high-speed internet service," the spokesperson added.

"That is why we plan to use European funding to improve high-speed broadband coverage for individuals and communities following an agreement with the European Commission."

The Daily Post recently revealed that BT is bringing super-fast broadband to homes and businesses in Buckley, Harwarden and Holywell over the next 12 months.
