Superfast North Yorkshire, a partnership led by North Yorkshire County Council and BT, builds on BT's own commercial roll-out of fibre broadband in the county so that 90 per cent of North Yorkshire's homes and businesses will have access to fibre broadband by the end of 2014. This typically means access to speeds of between 25mbps and 80mbps.

To help businesses in North Yorkshire take advantage of the faster broadband speeds a support service has been put in place to provide free services such as training workshops, skills master classes and business development events. This will demonstrate how faster broadband connections can help to develop business and increase profits by maximising efficiency. For more information email:
