William Hague praises Superfast North Yorkshire
William Hague has praised the work of the Superfast North Yorkshire rollout programme.MP for Richmond and Foreign Secretary William Hague has praised the work of the Superfast North Yorkshire rollout programme.
The regional project aims to deliver superfast fibre broadband to both residential and commercial properties throughout the area, with 14,000 premises now connected.
Superfast North Yorkshire was set up by BT and the local county council, to extend the network provider's own broadband rollout.
Mr Hague attended a demonstration of the high-speed technology's capabilities in Richmond last week to learn about how it will benefit people in the area.
The MP commented: "The fact that more than 14,000 homes and businesses in Richmondshire can now order fibre broadband is fantastic and I look forward to news of further upgrades in the coming months."
Currently over 120,000 premises in North Yorkshire can access the superfast service, with an additional 225,000 covered by BT's rollout.
Overall, it is hoped that 90 per cent of the region will be able to connect to fibre broadband by the end of the year.
