Wales has won broadband funds of £56.9m from the Coalition's £530m investment pot, following a successful bid for the cash from the Welsh Assembly.

However, the Welsh government needs to match the investment if it hopes to achieve its "superfast" broadband upgrade plan to reach 90 per cent of homes and businesses in Wales.

"If you suffer the frustration of slow internet connections, then tell your Welsh Assembly Member that you need broadband. Urge them to make this investment and ensure that Wales is not left behind," said culture secretary Jeremy Hunt.

In May, the UK government divvied up £50m of its £530m rural broadband cash to councils in Wiltshire, Norfolk and Devon and Somerset, in its final wave of pilots.

Later this year, an announcement is expected on broadband cash for every local authority in the country, with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport hoping to appease councils that will miss out on the £530m round of funding. ®
