Superfast North Yorkshire - consultation

North Yorkshire County Council has a vision to provide Next Generation Access (NGA) broadband services (capable of delivering download speeds of at least 30 Mbps) to all premises within the North Yorkshire boundaries, through the Superfast North Yorkshire (SFNY) project.

Phases 1 and 2 of the project will see superfast broadband delivered to approximately 91 per cent of the premises within North Yorkshire by June 2017.

The final nine per cent of premises present a challenge to the vision for the SFNY project. The remaining premises will be covered by a third and final phase.

Because public funds will be needed to subsidise the completion of the project, an open market review and public consultation represents a necessary part of the preliminaries to that process.

An open market review was undertaken between 9 November 2015 and 29 January 2016 to gain an awareness of the marketplace. Responses from broadband suppliers were used to inform us of where services are currently available and are being planned within the next three years. This information has been summarised to create the proposed Intervention Area for phase 3 of the project, outlined in the form of a PDF document and high resolution map image included on this page.

All interested parties are invited to provide comment and feedback on the proposal, details of how to respond are included in the document.
