New hyperfast service in Yealand
Hyperfast internet connectivity capable of delivering download speeds of up to 1,000 Gbps has now gone live at the village hall in Yealand.

The first step in providing next generation online access for local businesses and residents, the Westmorland Gazette reports the community-led B4YS project has seen the installation of vast amounts of fibre optic cabling in the area in recent weeks, with more still to follow.

Mike Macklin, of the Yealand team, said: "The hyperfast broadband service is now live in Yealand Village Hall. We completed the fibre blowing three weeks ago but we needed the Broadband for the Rural North technicians to connect us to the network."

He added that the areas of Conyers, Redmayne, Silverdale and Storth are the next on the list of priorities for networks going live, with the scheme helping to tackle the frustration of slow internet speeds that have blighted many local communities in years gone by.
