SUPERFAST North Yorkshire has announced the next phase in its expansion of high-speed fibre broadband in the county.
More than 24,000 homes and businesses in 34 communities, including Sheriff Hutton and Whitwell-on-the-Hill, are to be included in the first stages multi-million pound programme.
They will be upgraded by the end of the summer and there will also be a substantial investment in making fibre broadband more widely available in areas which already have the high-speed technology such as Malton.
It will take the total number of premises with access to fibre broadband in the county to more than 160,000 with Superfast North Yorkshire already set to reach 10,000 homes and businesses not covered by BT’s commercial roll-out by the end of March.
