Another £20 million is to be made available to support the rollout of super-fast broadband in Wales, it has been revealed.

The Welsh Government is to provide an additional £10 million in funding for each of the next two years, reports Wales Online.

This will go towards the £205 million needed for the principality's Next Generation Broadband project, which is designed to bring more homes and businesses online.

lestyn Davies, head of external affairs for the Federation of Small Businesses in Wales, welcomed ministers' decision to provide extra funding for infrastructure projects in the country.

"It is good to see priorities set on broadband," he stated.

Meanwhile, the Welsh Government said securing additional private funding for public infrastructure investment remains "central" to its objective of boosting capital investment.

"We are considering the full range of potential funding partners and a wide range of delivery mechanisms, including the development of non-dividend investment vehicles," it stated.

"We will be making further announcements about the way forward later this year."
