The majority of residents and businesses in the Vale of Glamorgan now have access to superfast broadband thanks to a mixture of private sector roll out and the Welsh Government’s Superfast Cymru project. Superfast Cymru has brought superfast broadband to vast parts of Wales that otherwise wouldn’t receive it
Fibre broadband is the next generation of broadband - much faster, more reliable and it uses a different technology.
Whilst traditional broadband is delivered via copper telephone lines, fibre broadband uses fibre optic cable.
This will have the power to transform the life, work and play of citizens across the Vale of Glamorgan. What's more, Superfast broadband will boost the economy locally, enabling businesses to work more effectively in new ways and reach out to new customers.
The Superfast Cymru roll-out ended in early 2018.
The Welsh Government are now working on the next stage of the rollout of fast reliable broadband to extend coverage even further.
Areas of Cowbridge, Dinas Powys, Rhoose, Southerndown, Sully, Wick and St Athan are amongst the first communities in the Vale of Glamorgan to be able to access this new service under the programme. Bonvilston is scheduled to go live in Spring 2016.
