Telecomm’s & Broadband
Our area largely comprises of many rural small businesses widespread across our vast landscape – we are the largest LEP geographically. To foster long term, viable rural economies, high speed and reliable broadband and mobile connectivity are non-negotiable needs for those working remotely.
We support the rollout of both, particularly where it has not been possible for the market to do so. Considering our areas our strengths in agri-food and biotechnology, it is very important for our area economically that we do this.
Through NYnet – a provider of broadband connectivity to the public and private sector, investment has continued to roll out superfast broadband across North Yorkshire, and we secured additional EU investment to go further but cannot stop there. A technical group has convened to advise on further opportunitites.
