With links to all other City Deal projects, the Digital Infrastructure project aims to:
- support a thriving digital economy across the City Region
- stimulate private sector investment
- improve public services
- generate well-paid job opportunities
Working alongside the UK Government, the Welsh Government and internet service providers, the project will lead to high-quality, full fibre public and private digital services in urban areas.
Internet coverage in rural areas will also be considerably improved for the benefit of residents and businesses, and work is taking place alongside mobile operators to enable early, in-region access to future technology, including 5G.
