Households and businesses in remote parts of North Wales are set to gain access to high-speed broadband services, it has been suggested.

According to ISPreview.co.uk, network operator FibreSpeed has linked up with broadband provider Exwavia to bring faster Wi-Fi to the Cefn Coch and Adfa areas of rural Powys.

At least 68 countryside homes and businesses in the county will be able to access 4Mb wireless broadband, with more to follow in the coming weeks.

Pete Jones, owner of the local Red Ridge Centre, said people living in Cefn Coch and Adfa have been "struggling for years" because of poor internet connectivity.

As such, the new wireless broadband network could make a big difference to their lives.

Annette Burgess, Managing Director of eXwavia, said local people have refused to accept poor broadband.

"As a community they have pulled together and now they are about to reap the rewards," she stated.
