Welsh Government investment in next generation broadband infrastructure

Following publication on 28 May 2015 of the Auditor General for Wales’ report into Welsh Government investment in next generation broadband infrastructure, the Fourth Assembly Public Accounts Committee considered how the Welsh Government is managing the roll out of next generation broadband services.

That Committee’s Report (PDF 332KB) was published in November 2015 and the Welsh Government’s response (PDF 147KB) was laid on 25 January 2016.

The previous Committee recommended in its Legacy Report, that its successor Committee should consider taking further evidence from the Welsh Government and BT in autumn 2016 to ascertain how progress has been made on the rollout of the Superfast Cymru contract.

The Public Accounts Committee considered the Welsh Government update in November 2016 and agreed not to request any further updates due to the inquiry scheduled to be undertaken by the Economy, Infrastructure and Skills Committee.
