Leading internet service provider BT is working with the Welsh Assembly to bring broadband to four so-called 'not-spots'.

Consumers living in Beulah and Ystrad Meurig in Ceredigion and Cil-y-Cwm and Llanfynydd in Carmarthenshire will be hooked up to the national broadband network for the first time, it has been revealed.

Homes in the villages are set to benefit from the technology by the end of the summer.

Welsh Minister for the Economy and Transport Ieuan Wyn Jones said access to the digital world is "crucial in a modern global economy".

"We cannot afford to leave anybody behind. This is why we have committed to finding ways for the relatively few areas in Wales that remain unable to access broadband," he stated.

"Top broadband links are vital for developing the knowledge economy, improving the ability of businesses and individuals to network and innovate."

Reynalton and Saundersfoot in Pembrokeshire, Cilcennin in Ceredigion and Gwytherin in Conwy were among the 'not-spots' to receive access to broadband in 2009.
