Fibre BroadbandThis page has information for residents in and around Ffairfach who are interested in getting gigabit-capable broadband (aka ‘fibre to the premises’).

This is being achieved through the Broadband Upgrade Fund:

To ensure the hardest-to-reach areas are not left behind and can access improved broadband services, the government has introduced a pilot campaign for homes and businesses in three rural areas of the UK, called the Broadband Upgrade Fund, as part of the national Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme. The aim is to help capture public interest in faster, more reliable broadband in each of the pilot areas. This will encourage suppliers to extend their broadband networks to meet demand and the government will help to fund the cost of the work. There is also an active Facebook group which has more information about this scheme and what is happening in Ffairfach: www.facebook.com/groups/742005249702155
