P-04-364 Fibre Optic for Rural Areas

Petition wording:

We call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to do more to support the roll-out of next generation/fibre optic broadband and to ensure that it is available to everyone in Wales by 2013, including Ecommerce, new communication businesses (IT Industry) and enhanced communication between current businesses while having the side effect of benefiting the local communities. For an example, in the Valleys many families and businesses are stuck with slow speeds in comparison to the rest of the UK. This petition is to get Fibre Optic installed to these areas where businesses already are to be able to help revive the poorest areas in Wales/Cymru.
