Fibre optic broadband comes to Boroughbridge
The town of Boroughbridge has been introduced to fibre optic broadband, thanks to the Superfast North Yorkshire project.

It has come as a result of a collaboration between North Yorkshire County Council and service provider BT and aims to connect 90 per cent of the region to the next-generation technology by the the end of 2014.

The latest rollout means that an estimated 1,667 homes and businesses currently now have access to superfast broadband speeds.

BT's engineers will continue to carry out essential work on the upgrade in the coming weeks, which will result in the coverage increasing to around 3,000 premises.

Harrogate and Knaresborough MP Andrew Jones hailed the introduction of the new network, claiming the move will be hugely beneficial for both the social and economic prospects of the town.

He said: "This technology can transform many aspects of our lives and Boroughbridge residents and businesses will feel a real benefit from these changes."
