Plans to bring full fibre broadband to 3.2 million more homes must reach those in the most isolated rural communities.
It comes after Openreach announced it was expanding investment in full fibre broadband to an extra 3.2m homes and businesses in rural areas.
Places set to benefit include Aberystwyth in west Wales, Millom in Cumbria, Thurso in north east Scotland, and Ballycastle in County Antrim.
The Farmers Union of Wales (FUW) welcomed the funding but warned it must reach those in rural areas who were not currently benefiting from full fibre broadband.
FUW Ceredigion county chairman Morys Ioan said the last few months had shown how vital connectivity was.
He added broadband was key for the competitiveness and viability of rural businesses.
“The FUW has stressed on many occasions that those without a connection cannot diversify their businesses, that they cannot support their children’s education and that they cannot connect readily with Government programmes for advice and support payments as they are mandated to do," said Mr Ioan.
