A York-based broadband provider which was lauded for bringing services to rural communities will be key to a conference starting in the city tomorrow (Wednesday, December 3rd).
NY Net was chosen by the EU to work on a 3.5 million (£2.9 million) project which aims to improve access to broadband across the continent.
The B3 - Regions for Better BroadBand connection initiative involves nine partner organisations across Europe, who will share their knowledge in a bid to enhance services.
David Cullen, NYnet's chief executive, commented: "I am delighted that the work of NYnet to bring high-speed broadband to North Yorkshire has been highlighted as a model of good practice to be shared throughout Europe.
"Our project is both unique and ground-breaking and will serve as an excellent case study of best practice to be shared with our European neighbours."
The project is funded by the European Territorial Cooperation INTERREG IV C programme, which invests in the enlargement of the European broadband network.
