Businesses in the North Yorkshire area may soon have access to low-cost fibre optic broadband under a scheme by NYnet.
Carried out in conjunction with Yorkshire Forward, the project will be available to companies operating in business parks throughout the region.
Additional funding from the development agency will allow firms to connect to the fibre-optic service at a subsidised rate, ISP Review reports.
Commenting on the project, Robert Ling, business improvement manager for Yorkshire Forward, said: "The NYnet infrastructure can deliver high capacity, resilient and cost effective broadband to business parks throughout North Yorkshire, which have previously had issues with speed and network capacity."
He added that the services will be available across 130 business park sites around the region and are expected to bring significant economic gains to the area.
NYnet is a public and private commercial operation that works in partnership with Yorkshire Forward, Government Office Yorkshire and Humber and technology partner BT.
