Letter: Hi-tech 'dinosaur'.


SIR - I was interested to read your report (May 29) about church steeples inspiring an answer to prayer for broadband coverage in rural areas and the recent revelations from watchdog Ofcom that homes in rural areas were more likely to have broadband than those in towns, albeit at a slower speed.

Despite the Welsh Assembly Government investing millions of pounds in broadband, and claims by BT that 99.6% of Wales' population has access to broadband, residents in my urban constituency of Cardiff Central, and living at one of the highest peaks in the City, are still among the City's "not-spots".

Once again, while the rest of the UK is enjoying a broadband revolution, it appears that Wales is still the dinosaur in the evolutionary cycle.
