A Ruthin-based company is using wireless technology to help combat broadband 'not spots' in rural Wales.

Boyns.net is using the technology, which is being beamed from Clawddnewydd Community Centre, to supply broadband to Llaneliden, Rhyd y Meudwy, Melin y Wig and Derwen, reports the Denbighshire Free Press.

"We now have a wireless link from the Clawdd exchange that will carry up to 180Mb," one user, Peter Cobbold, told the news provider.

"At present we run on one phone line into the canolfan, giving 5Mb. The wireless is very low power, does not need a licence, and no planning permission is needed."

He added that it is frustrating trying to deal with big broadband companies when there are phone line faults, but now all local residents need to do is call Rob Boyns.

BT is currently aiming to provide five 'not spots' with super-fast broadband as part of its Race to Infinity, the results of which will be decided today.
