NYnet Issues North Yorkshire Broadband Update

Posted: 08th May, 2008 By: MarkJ
NYnet, which was recently awarded a £42.4m Wide Area Network (WAN) broadband contract by North Yorkshire County Council (here), has issued an update on its progress and announced the services launch:

‘NYnet’ provides high-speed backhaul infrastructure to 12 Points of Presence in BT Exchanges throughout North Yorkshire, and has undertaken the challenge of stimulating North Yorkshire’s economic growth. The company will do this by providing a high-speed backhaul broadband infrastructure, to enable public and private sector service providers to deliver more advanced services to the citizens of North Yorkshire.

NYnet intends to overcome the issue of rural/coastal disadvantage in terms of broadband and connectivity. This carrier class core and access network offers an exciting proposition for service providers wishing to make an early impact on the expanding markets opened up by next generation broadband services.

The unique commercial enterprise is a collaboration between North Yorkshire County Council, Yorkshire Forward and the European Union. There is potential for grant incentives to Service Providers wishing to establish a presence in the region.

The public and private sector commercial venture was created to provide a communications network capable of delivering multiple high quality services to citizens, business and public sector bodies in North Yorkshire.

The end-to-end architecture incorporates quality of service, resilient core and cost effective wholesale access. NYnet will also offer tiered service level agreements to service providers, with guarantees on bandwidth, quality of service and latency, plus other key service parameters. The collaboration of public sector and private enterprise in this venture creates a major opportunity to meet the challenge of ensuring a socially inclusive approach to all North Yorkshire citizens.

David Cullen, NYnet Chief Executive, said: “The NYnet offering provides service providers with a cost-effective option to tap into this affluent region. With a population of over 600,000, number of businesses in the region of 50,000, a talented workforce and a number of development sites available, there is an excellent business case for investment and growth. As well as being unique in the UK, the NYnet offering is seen as one of the most ground breaking technology-based initiatives in Europe and is being watched with interest.”

Cullen continued: “Following the ADSL enablement of all of the remaining exchanges in North Yorkshire, the region now has a broadband take-up rate that is higher than the national average.

The region offers an excellent basis for relocation, with supported investment packages, excellent transport infrastructure, superb quality of life and rapidly evolving clusters in the creative media, digital and bioscience sectors.
”

NYnet was formed in March 2007 as a public sector controlled private limited company. The company received over £5m of start-up funding from both regional development agency Yorkshire Forward (£4 Million) and the European Union (£1.1 Million).
