We are seeking your views on changes to building regulations to require gigabit capable connections in all new homes across Wales.
The proposals will amend building regulations guidance: part R (physical infrastructure for high-speed electronic communications networks). This will require developers to ensure:
- all new build homes are installed with the gigabit-ready physical infrastructure for gigabit-capable connections
- a gigabit-capable connection is installed in a new build home subject to a £2,000 cost cap per dwelling
- or where a gigabit-capable connection is not being installed, the next fastest broadband connection is installed without exceeding the £2,000 cost cap
