Broadband for some Welsh notspots via RIBS scheme

ThinkBroadband reports some good news for a number of notspots in Wales:
"The Welsh Assembly and BT will bring broadband to some rural notspots in Wales following news at the end of May that a pensioner living in Carmarthenshire was offered broadband with a £150,000 price tag. 8,500 premises have so far benefited from the joint funding of the deployment of broadband in Wales through RIBS (the Regional Innovative Broadband Support scheme), and the new areas to be included are Beulah and Ystrad Meurig in Ceredigion and Cil-y-Cwm and Llanfynydd in Carmarthenshire should be connected by the end of Summer. Six areas of Wales benefited under the RIBS scheme last year."
More on the RIBS scheme is available here.
