Superfast broadband arrives in Cross Hills
BT's rollout of superfast broadband in North Yorkshire has reached another community, with the first homes and businesses in Cross Hills now able to access the service.

Located in the Craven district, the village has become the latest part of the county to benefit from the project. The telecoms giant has already completed upgrades in locations such as Scarborough and Thirsk.

Julian Smith MP, whose constituency includes Cross Hills, welcomed the arrival of the technology in the village.

"High-speed digital connectivity is a defining factor in our long-term success, which is why I've been pushing so hard to make it a reality in my constituency," he was quoted by the Craven Herald as saying.

Tom Keeney, BT's regional director for Yorkshire and the Humber, explained that the telecoms giant's fibre optic network is expanding "rapidly", providing a boost for local economies across the country.

He added that the service opens up "a whole new world" for web users, allowing people to do more online and at faster speeds.
