Plaid Cymru Member of Parliament for Dwyfor Meirionnydd Liz Saville Roberts has met with the UK communications regulator Ofcom, to press the need for improved broadband connectivity in her rural constituency.

Mrs Saville Roberts, who has successfully campaigned to improve broadband availability across many communities in her constituency, will be meeting BT and Openreach later this week, where she will raise the plight of constituents struggling with both woeful service and broken promises by network providers.
