“Catching Up”

     That’s the official statement, anyway.   About Welsh broadband connections, that is.   Apparently, our land is way behind in having superfast broadband connections.

The average UK figure of premises covered by this connection is nearly eighty percent.

Nowhere in Wales is it much more than fifty percent.

I suppose the reason given for this difference is, as so often:  “Well, it’s only Wales . . . “

Perhaps our Assembly Government should be raising a rumpus.   Or are the bods in Bay Watch too busy with other matters?

About Archie Lowe

Though not born in Wales, I have lived and worked here for many years now. I love the place and love that mercurial thing "Welshness". I have been accused of being "a Taffophile" - which is pretty near the truth. The question I ask whenever some idea comes up for the whole of the UK is: "What's in it for Wales". I believe in an independent Wales and am so pleased that our Assembly is a big step on that road.
