A new lobby group has been founded to campaign for improved broadband services in the Welsh principality.

The Wales Internet Service Providers Association (Wispa) has been established, with former Ofcom Head of Broadcasting and Telecommunications for Wales Hywel Wiliam as its inaugural Chairman.

He said it is vital that Wales is not left behind in the UK's digital revolution, meaning there is "a lot of work to do".

"I firmly believe Wales has a bright digital future but we want other providers to join us fast and we also want to sit down with BT at the earliest opportunity," Mr Wiliam stated.

He said that Wispa would be embarking on a national education campaign to increase awareness of the benefits of high-speed broadband.

Last year, a leaked government document accused the Welsh Assembly's super-fast broadband pilot application of "lacking effort".

However, in January, a national broadband strategy document entitled 'Delivering a Digital Wales' was published, outlining plans for improved web services.
