Welsh Government Minister Julie James is set to visit Anglesey in the coming weeks to attend a public meeting regarding the island’s significant issues with broadband, with the meeting to be chaired by the island’s Plaid Cymru Assembly Member Rhun ap Iorwerth.
The Anglesey AM, Mr ap Iorwerth, has led a long-running campaign on the island to improve broadband infrastructure and has achieved notable success in areas such as Llansadwrn and other communities across the island which have had particular difficulties with their broadband connections.
Ahead of the public meeting on November 29th in Bodedern’s Village Hall, which gets underway at 6pm, Mr ap Iorwerth extended an invitation to all on the island who are having issues with their broadband connections to attend the meeting and express their concerns.
Mr ap Iorwerth said:
“I’m very pleased to be able to chair such an important meeting which will be attended by Welsh Government Minister Julie James, to give Anglesey residents the opportunity to express their views about a broadband situation which simply isn’t good enough.
“Since taking office in 2013, the issue of broadband connections and infrastructure has been one of the most common to be brought to my attention, and I’m pleased that my office has been able to organise this meeting to give people an opportunity to raise the issue with Welsh Government.
“Lots of people on the island have been able to secure a broadband connection by now, of course, but there are still lots of problems that my constituents tell me they’re having with the service.
“I am grateful that this meeting has been arranged for November 29th – to those who are facing issues with their broadband connections, please come along and share your views and experiences. I look forward to seeing you there.”
