Telecoms & 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 roll-out 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.

Projects:

Through NYnet – a provider of broadband connectivity to the public and private sector,  investment has continued to roll out super-fast 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 opportunities.
