The long wait to be connected to superfast broadband is finally over for people in an Anglesey village.

Residents of Gadlys, Llansadwrn are set to reap the benefits of having a stronger broadband connection.

Assembly Member Rhun ap Iorwerth AM and Anglesey county councillor Carwyn Jones paid a visit to local couple, Malcolm and Sandy Swann, to witness the new broadband speeds at first hand.

The Ynys Môn AM praised the positive steps forward, whilst also noting that there is much more left to do for the entire island to achieve the same standards as those in Gadlys.

“This is great news, but my campaign for a better broadband connection for the island continues,” he said.

“It’s been a long road for residents of the Gadlys area, so I was very pleased to see the fibre broadband in action.”

Mr ap Iorwerth added that many more areas on Anglesey were either “still waiting or have just missed out on” the first stage of the Superfast Cymru scheme.

“A fast data connection is not a ‘luxury’ these days, but rather an integral part of our everyday lives,” he said.

“That’s why I’m asking people to get in touch with their experiences, as the Cabinet Secretary has agreed to come up to Anglesey again.

“My aim is to put those who have missed out at the front of the queue for the second phase.”
