Welsh government pledges £39m for schools broadband

All schools will have access to faster broadband connections as a result of £39m from the Welsh government, First Minister Carwyn Jones said.

He said the money would "transform" learning and teaching, and would give all schools access to world-class broadband by next year.

Ministers said they acted after hearing about schools' experiences of coping with variable broadband speeds.

Opposition parties welcomed the money.
