Faster Broadband for Rural UK Villages of Nun Monkton and Moor Monkton

Thursday, Mar 8th, 2012 (2:04 pm) - Score 1,086

NYnet, a UK public sector controlled private limited company, has announced that the isolated rural North Yorkshire villages of Nun Monkton and Moor Monkton can now recieve faster broadband internet access. The effort is thanks to a mix funding coming from the community, local businesses, Defra’s Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) and CLANNET.

The local Nun Monkton Foundation Primary School will act as a wireless broadband hub for the network. Both villages are home to a small population of just a few hundred people.

Nick hall, Managing Director of CLANNET (the ISP), said:

I was very impressed with the commitment and involvement of the community, which made us more determined to make this network happen. Equally Green-tech was just as determined and committed as they could see the benefit to their employees, many of whom live in the local community. Another benefit of the project is that we are training a local tradesman, Jack Stout, to become a fully qualified installer thus providing employment and a resource for the community.”

The first installations began this week with 47 subscribers and then the network will be extended out to the neighbouring village of Moor Monkton where 25 subscribers are already awaiting their new connection. The network should be complete by the Spring.
