Businesses and organisations in South Yorkshire have been invited to take part in the region's superfast broadband scheme.

The Digital Region plan was given a funding boost as part of the recent Budget and businesses based in the cities of Doncaster, Barnsley, Sheffield and Rotherham are being invited to sign up to the network.

According to the Star, businesses have also been encouraged to suggest how exactly they would use the high-speed broadband service.

Interim Chief Executive Julie Readman told the newspaper that as the programme is in an early stage it could be possible to include any specific needs highlighted by businesses in the final rollout.

The 25Mb open-access network is designed to offer a guaranteed bandwidth to all users and has already been suggested for use in the local education and healthcare sectors.

Over 40,000 businesses and 546,000 homes are expected to benefit from access to the completed Digital Region network.
