Could slow internet be history?

A local adventure centre owner from Cefn Coch says slow broadband speeds could soon be a thing of the past.
Pete Jones, Owner of the Red Ridge Centre near Cefn Coch and Adfa, is urging local residents to get involved and fill in grant application forms which will allow them to receive up to 100% of the installation cost for high speed broadband access.
“After many years of frustration in Cefn Coch, Adfa and surrounding rural areas, these small rural communities will at last have the broadband access that they have been waiting for," said Mr Jones. “Years of local and national campaigning has caused some real joined up thinking which has resulted in the re-introduction of grants to assist with internet access.
“This has enabled companies to now provide the more remote areas of Wales with fast broadband, which unlike other broadband services will provide the actual speed that users pay for. Outdated dial-up internet could soon be a thing of the past.”
Many residents have already submitted their grant applications which are currently being processed. Residents who currently have no, or very poor access to broadband service are being urged to fill in their grant application, which pays up to 100% of the installation fees at their property.
Annette Burgess, Managing Director of locally-based internet firm eXwavia, said: “The more residents who apply for these grants, the faster the speed of installation. If the group receives more than 40 applications, then in just a few short months residents of Cefn Coch, Adfa, and surrounding local areas will be able to benefit from internet speeds up to 14MB.”
“I encourage anyone who is suffering with slow broadband speeds to fill out a grant application, and the team at eXwavia will be happy to help with this. It would be fantastic to see these rural communities connected with high speed broadband.”
