UPDATE CNY Helps Upper Wharfedale and Littondale UK Get Faster Broadband

Posted: 14th Feb, 2012 By: MarkJ
yorkshire uk broadband internet mapnynet uk ispThe Connecting North Yorkshire (CNY) and LN Communications (LNC) project looks set to make faster wireless broadband speeds of up to 20Mbps (Megabits per second) available to communities across Upper Wharfedale and Littondale in North Yorkshire (England, UK).

According to Stray FM, a local radio station, CNY intends to run a fibre optic connection all the way to Kettlewell Primary School. It's understood that the School will then also act as a wireless hub for distributing faster internet access out to the surrounding communities.

CNY’s Chairman and Local Councillor, Carl Les, explained:

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to deliver our eleventh high speed broadband project. We are committed to developing community based schemes in areas where high speed broadband is not commercially viable in the open market – the so called ‘broadband not spots’.

We are working with our partner Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), a Government organisation tasked with ensuring that 90% of the UK can receive high quality broadband access by 2015 and 100% by 2017.

The core of the scheme through Threshfield, Conistone, Kilnsey, Kettlewell, Starbotton, Buckden, Cray, Hubberholme, Yockenthwaite, Beckermonds and Oughtershaw is confirmed to go ahead. However, we still need more people to sign up in the Littondale communities including Hawkswick, Arncliffe, Litton, Halton Gill and Foxup."

A key meeting is due to be held at Kilnsey Village Hall on 14th March 2012, which will explain the scheme to locals. At this stage a firm timetable for deployment remains unclear, although past projects have tended to move quite quickly.
