Penallt's broadband provision has undergone a large change since early 2013 when few residents experienced download speeds in excess of 1-2 Mbps.
The situation today is that those in the northern and southern parts of the village have the availability of fibre to their premises (FTTP) and many are now connected to the internet in this way. Those in the largest (central) part, connected to the cabinet (no. 20) in Lone Lane, are not so well served but have nevertheless benefited a good deal by a microwave link to Monmouth provided by Spectrum Internet in 2013 and, more recently, by BT Openreach bringing fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) in summer 2017.
