Digital Connectivity

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

It is now compulsory for hospitality businesses and other high risk settings to collect contact details to support the NHS Test, Trace and Protect service. Details of staff, customers and visitors need to be recorded.

From September 14, 2020, it is a legal requirement to wear face coverings in indoor public spaces as well as on public transport.

You can find specific guidance and downloadable resources to help you prepare to re-open your business.

Digital technology underpins almost every aspect of modern living across work, travel, leisure and health, and good internet access is now widely viewed as the ‘4th utility’. Fast, reliable connectivity is vital to support business growth, help rural communities to thrive, improve health and well-being, and make it easier for people to get online and access public services.

Superfast broadband is defined as an internet connection with a download speed greater than 30mb per second. 86% of Carmarthenshire residents have access to superfast broadband, but the take-up rate is only 40%. 

The more individuals you have in your business or household using connected devices, the bigger the bandwidth you will need to prevent slow down or loss of service. If you're unsure what is best for your business or household, or what is available in your area the resources on this page will help you decide.
