Ogi & Bwyd: a match made at Abergavenny Food Festival
Friday, 10 September, 2021. Cardiff, Wales. Ogi, Wales’ fastest-growing broadband company, is excited to announce their sponsorship of ‘The Dome at the Castle’ at this year’s Abergavenny Food Festival, which is located at the heart of one of their local build areas. The festival is back for some proper fun and feasting after a year of virtual events and is taking place between the 18th and 19th of September 2021.
The Festival prides itself on transforming the way people think about food; challenging and promoting new ideas and pushing the boundaries. Each year the festival attracts more than 30,000 visitors and is committed to supporting local communities, employing over 120 young people over the Festival weekend and creating opportunities for catering students to gain valuable work experience.
Mari Stevens, Chief Marketing Officer at Ogi, said, “Our community-based mission, rooted in real places is why we’re pleased to be able to support the festival this year. Our engineering work to bring full fibre broadband to Abergavenny means that the town will be amongst the very first communities in Wales to benefit from top-speed, future-proof broadband from Ogi.”
Residents and businesses in Abergavenny, like so many Welsh communities, have simply not been getting the broadband they deserve, so that’s where the transformation begins. Ogi’s offering is ultrafast and ultra-reliable – up to an incredible 900 Mbps, which is more than forty times faster than the median speed for Abergavenny (currently 22.31 Mbps).
Full fibre broadband is much faster, more reliable and way more sustainable than traditional services. Ogi is specifically targeting underserved areas, accelerating the pace of full fibre roll out across south Wales – and transforming the digital landscape for generations to come.
Mari said, “Mae Ogi wrthi’n adeiladu rhwydwaith band eang ffeibr llawn yn Y Fenni ar y foment, felly ryn ni wrth ein bodd i fod yn cefnogi Gŵyl sydd mor bwysig i’r gymuned leol; ac fel cwmni Cymreig, ryn ni hefyd yn gyffrous i fod yn partnera gyda un o ddigwyddiadau mwyaf eiconig Cymru.”
