Fibre-optic broadband has finally arrived in North Wales, with 11,000 households in Connahs Quay set to benefit over the coming weeks.

Broadband network upgrades are set to be completed shortly, allowing residents in the town to take advantage of a full range of web services.

BT has been carrying out modernisation work in Connahs Quay as part of its £2.5 billion refurbishment programme.

As a result of the upgrade, residents will now be able to download at a rate of 40Mb, potentially rising to 60Mb in the future.

Ann Beynon, BT Director for Wales, welcomed the news that fibre broadband is set to go live in the principality.

"This is an exciting development for the Wales broadband story," she commented.

"Households and businesses in Connahs Quay, switching to super-fast broadband, will soon be experiencing the internet as they have never experienced it before."

Up in Scotland, 6,700 homes and business premises in Montrose are benefitting following the completion of infrastructure upgrade work.
