Connect Carmarthenshire

Connecting Carmarthenshire

The way in which we communicate is continuously advancing.  More than ever we are choosing to communicate through video calls, text messages and e-mails.

Businesses today find it extremely difficult to operate without a sound internet connection and access to the world of clients the internet can bring.

On a local level, we depend more and more on access to our mobile phones to keep in touch with family and friends.

In recent years we have worked hard to improve technology connections in Carmarthenshire, but there is a long way to go.

In order for us to have a better understanding of the needs of our communities, we'd be grateful if you could spent just two minutes answering 5 short questions about your mobile phone and internet connection at home.
