- Wireless broadband network for Newgale and Penycwm
We consulted with:
- Newgale and Penycwm residents
- Local business owners
- TFL Group Ltd.
Residents of Newgale and Penycwm on the Pembrokeshire coast were receiving poor broadband speeds of less than 2mbps and were eligible to receive installation of an alternative broadband system, subsided by the Welsh Government.
This was to have a significant impact on all involved, specifically local businesses that wanted to keep abreast of the latest technology, such as electronic POS, managing stock control and staying connected with customers via social media.
Following a lengthy process of site surveys and assistance with the funding application approval process, 1a Aerials worked alongside TFL Group Ltd. to coordinate the project. A network of radio linked access points (each no larger than a small pencil case) was installed to wirelessly transmit signal throughout the villages.
The TFL service now continues to provide downloads speeds of up to 10MB, a vast improvement for a rural area that isn’t yet in reach of fibre broadband.

If your property is receiving internet speeds of less than 2mbps, you may also be eligible for help from the Welsh Government. Contact us for some friendly advice and to discuss your options.
