A new community broadband scheme is set to improve internet access for residents and businesses in St Davids, the UK's smallest city.

The tiny Pembrokeshire outpost, famed for its cathedral, has long been regarded as a broadband 'notspot', but the TFL-Group initiative could be set to solve connectivity issues.

Through the Treleddyd Fawr Community Broadband Project, people living and working in St Davids – which is situated at the most westernly point in Wales, 17km away from the nearest telephone exchange – will be able to access high-speed broadband for the first time.

Jonathan England, Director of the TFL Group, commented that the area around St Davids is "one of the most poorly-served areas of BT’s network".

"Not only were basic internet services completely unobtainable, but in many cases the communications signal was so weak that even basic telephone services were practically unusable," he stated.

"This project would not have been completed in such a short time without the help of the Welsh Assembly's broadband support scheme."

Mr England said his firm was expecting the new high-speed broadband services to make "a huge impact" on businesses and homes in the area.
