North York­shire better con­nected

The Scarborough News - - BUSINESS MATTERS -

Take-up of su­per­fast broad­band from in­ter­net providers in North York­shire has reached 51% – one of the high­est in the coun­try.

Phases one and two of the Su­per­fast North York­shire project, un­der­taken by the County Coun­cil and its wholly-owned com­pany NYnet, have brought su­per­fast broad­band avail­abil­ity to more than 90% of homes and busi­nesses in the re­gion. Coun­cil­lor Don Macken­zie, ex­ec­u­tive mem­ber for broad­band, said: “1,500 con­nec­tions a month shows what a great in­vest­ment this is for the tax­payer. Take up in our county is one of the high­est in the coun­try.”
