NYnet Finishes North Yorkshire UK Broadband Rollout

Posted: 05th Jun, 2010 By: MarkJ
yorkshire uk broadband internet mapNYnet, which was formed in March 2007 as a public sector controlled private limited company, has finally completed its high-speed broadband internet roll out for North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) on schedule and within budget.

The £42.4m 10 year contract connects 550 schools, care centres, libraries and council offices in the region. As a result of the connection, council sites can now receive core broadband speeds up to 60 times faster than previously available, with 35% more bandwidth, at no additional cost.

The council awarded its entire Wide Area Network (WAN) broadband contract to NYnet Ltd in 2008, which is not surprising since NYnet is in part a collaboration between Yorkshire Forward and North Yorkshire County Council with funding from the European Union (EU).

David Sadler, Assistant Director in charge of ICT Services at North Yorkshire County Council, said:

"As a result of the NYnet connection, the Council has been able to deliver massively improved services to the public across North Yorkshire. NYnet is a unique technology enterprise which has made a real difference to the economic and social fortunes of the county providing the latest broadband technology at no extra cost.

The increased efficiencies made possible through NYnet’s technology such as shared council services, and back office functions, has provided excellent value for money and delivered huge cost savings."

NYnet now provides high-speed broadband connections to nearly 80% of public sector services in the county including offices, schools, libraries, and 15 Fire Service sites across North Yorkshire. Many North Yorkshire schools had previously suffered from a very slow and unreliable broadband connection which meant that teachers were unable or reluctant to use online resources.

However it's not just public services that have seen the benefits. We recently reported that Fibrestream's strategic partnership (NextGenUs) had worked with NYnet to bring symmetric speeds of 10Mbps to residents in the rural villages of Newton and Stape (two adjoining parishes in deeply rural North Yorkshire) - HERE.
