A Broadband Guide for Wales
This Broadband Guide for Wales was compiled by Ofcom Wales staff following a meeting with the National Assembly for Wales Cross Party Group.
Assembly members felt that it would be invaluable if Ofcom were to compile a useful resource for Assembly Members and their staff which would explain the basics of broadband; the different delivery options available; as well as informing them about Ofcom’s latest work and the political interventions which are taking place at a Welsh, UK and European level. The result is Ofcom’s Broadband Guide for Wales.
