Capitalising on the opportunities presented by broadband-enabled digital technologies is vital to strengthening both business performance and regional economic performance in Wales.

It showed how the use of broadband resources can help SMEs to improve their performance, become more efficient and contribute towards stronger regional productivity. This is important for Wales in order to bridge the regional prosperity gap with the UK.
