Plaid Cymru has promised to invest in Wales' digital future if it emerges triumphant at next week's Welsh Assembly elections.

The political party, which campaigns for Welsh autonomy from Westminster, has pledged to "connect Wales" by investing in its broadband infrastructure.

Campaigners in the principality have long argued that Wales is being left behind the rest of the UK where high-speed broadband is concerned.

And Plaid Cymru says it will address this issue by investing millions in the provision of fibre and Wi-Fi broadband connections across rural parts of the country.

Back in February, the Welsh Assembly published its Delivering a Digital Wales report, outlining plans to deliver nationwide next-generation broadband by 2020.

"We will seek to ensure that market-led private investment in next-generation broadband and additional next-generation deployment through public sector intervention will together deliver high-speed broadband services throughout Wales," the document read.

The assembly said it was aiming to equip all Welsh businesses with high-speed broadband by 2016, and all households by the end of the decade.
