DENBIGHSHIRE communities are set to benefit from superfast broadband by the end of March.

Dyserth, Rhuddlan, St Asaph and Trefnant will have access to high speed internet as part of the UK Government’s roll-out of superfast broadband.

Wales Secretary David Jones said: "The Superfast Cymru project is a prime example of how UK Government investment can be combined with other funding to deliver for the people of Wales.

"In addition to the funding already committed, this Government announced in December that a further £10million would be made available to address those areas not set to benefit from current broadband roll-out across the UK.

"I have recently met with the Culture Secretary and the Communications Minister to make the case for Wales to receive a fair share of the additional funding on offer.

"Improved connectivity for homes and businesses is a cornerstone of this Government's efforts to strengthen the economy in Wales.

The UK Government has invested £57 million pounds in the Superfast Cymru project which is on track to deliver superfast broadband to 96 per cent of homes and businesses in Wales by the end of 2015.

In total more than 690,000 properties that would otherwise have been left in the digital slow lane will be able to access superfast speeds.

Superfast broadband will enable families to do things like simultaneously download a movie, watch a TV replay service, do homework on the internet and play games online all at the same time.
