Broadband for Delyn

Alison Halford:

What percentage of the £18 million broadband budget will Delyn receive? (WAQ18195)

The Minister for Economic Development (Andrew Davies):

Of the £18.4 million broadband budget, £9.9 million was for the provision of multimedia equipment for schools. The table below gives the allocation for each local education authority. The other part of the funding, £8.4 million, was for the provision of the Welsh lifelong learning network, procured in March 2002. The Welsh lifelong learning network is a three-year contract to provide a single high-capacity internet point of presence in each unitary authority, paid for by the Assembly Government. In addition to the £18.4 million, assistance with the costs of local area networks is also being provided to all authorities for the next three years, to connect to the point of presence and to provide training and support.
