Slow take up of superfast broadband, warns expert

Wales is not making the most of a £425m contract to roll out superfast broadband in rural areas, according to the former head of BT in Wales.

John Davies says more needs to be spent on marketing the project, which is heavily backed with public money.

Take up in areas that have had it for a year is 19% with just over £300,000 spent on marketing, which is around 1% of the overall cost so far.

But ministers said take up was where they expected it to be at this stage.

Nick Servini reports.
