A fire brigade based in the north of England has signed a new broadband deal with provider NYnet that will last five years.
The deal is thought to be worth around £350,000 and will help to double the bandwidth supplied to North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service (NYF&RS).
As reported by the Whitby Gazette, a total of 15 fire service sites will move across to the NYnet network, which will create a saving of £50,000 thanks to improved efficiency.
Gerry Seal, network manager at NYF&RS, said: "The NYnet network provides us with this in abundance.
"The old network was riddled with problems that NYnet was instantly able to resolve, the switchover was easy and we can now do our job much quicker and more efficiently therefore benefiting the North Yorkshire community."
Formed by Yorkshire Forward and North Yorkshire County Council, the NYnet network was started with funding from the European Union and is designed to provide super-fast broadband to the public sector.
