Superfast Broadband Petition

Superfast broadband (at least 25 mbps) is now one of life's essentials: for work, studying, receiving online services and leisure. 

Unfortunately, Dwyfor Meirionnydd is amongst the worst served areas throughout the UK for superfast broadband. 

If we are to strengthen the rural and coastal economy then we must have effective and comprehensive superfast broadband. Like water and electricity, superfast broadband is essential in this day and age.

We call on the Welsh and UK Governments to ensure that superfast broadband reaches every household and that no-one is left behind.

    I’ve been self employed for 5 years and am constantly hindered by slow broadband. My future earnings are dependent on fast broadband

    A fully working broadband would be a good start let alone super fast broadband,

    I am pleased to support this petition as the broadband provision to our village (Brithdir, near Dolgellau) is appallingly slow which at times directly affects our business of local bookkeepers and accountants, particularly in these difficult times when face-to-face meetings are not possible and a greater reliance has to be placed on an effective and reliable broadband service.

    We are served by an old overhead telephone wire which is continually being damaged by the weather. We’ve been told by Openreach engineers that it needs upgrading, but we only ever get temporary fixes.

    Our average speed is usually well below the 1mps we are ‘guaranteed’ and often gets as low as 0.03mps!

    I have recently had a new broadband connection installed at Ty Mawr through BT (about 6 weeks ago) and right from the beginning the broadband has not worked at all. I’m still having to pay for the “service” even though it is not working! They want to fix it but I have to be at the property before they will try, but it is COVID lockdown and I’m working in a different place of the country. BT have also placed a black mark on my credit file for non-payment of the bill, despite them not setting up a direct debit from me properly and that I have never had any broadband since it was installed.

    My other farm, Clogwyn , has had BT broadband since 2016 on the old copper wires and speeds are typically 0.4mb with daily outages. I still pay full price. I have lost hundreds of pounds in revenue from the broadband failure over weeks not monitoring an on site hydro electric scheme that must be monitored 24 hours a day.
