“MUCH-NEEDED” fibre broadband services are being rolled out in Dinas Powys.

Welsh broadband company, Ogi, is bringing their ultrafast, full fibre broadband network to Dinas Powys, with engineering work starting this month.

A fibre optic cable network will be created as part of Ogi’s ongoing project to bring full fibre broadbands to communities across South Wales – particularly “harder to connect” communities.

Vale of Glamorgan Council deputy leader and cabinet member for education and regeneration, Cllr Lis Burnett, said: “The council is delighted to be partnering with Ogi to deliver this project.

“Over the past couple of years, digital inclusion has become more important than ever.

“Schools have relied on the internet for learning, while it has also allowed us to work, connect with family and friends and be entertained.

“This scheme will provide residents in Dinas Powys with fast, reliable broadband, something that is absolutely vital in the modern world.”

Full fibre broadband is deemed faster, more reliable, and more sustainable than traditional services, with Ogi’s offering up to 900 Mbps (megabits per second).

Ogi has already rolled out services in other areas of Vale of Glamorgan, including:

  • Llantwit Major;
  • St Athan;
  • Rhoose.

Elsewhere in South East Wales they have set-up the ultrafast broadband in Abergavenny, with plans for Monmouth. The company has already laid 100km of cutting-edge fibre cables across South Wales.

In South West Wales Ogi has rolled out the service in Harverfordwest and will soon be coming to Johnston and Milford Haven.

CEO at Ogi, Ben Allwright, said: “We're committed to helping every Welsh community build back better.

"Brilliant broadband helps deliver real opportunities, resilience and sustainability, helping us prosper both locally and nationally."
