The Digital Region broadband project in South Yorkshire has started to offer services to businesses in the region, it has been revealed.

According to the Yorkshire Post, business telephony and video conferencing solutions can now be accessed through the fibre-optic technology, even though some cables are still in the process of being laid.

Once completed, the high-speed broadband network will offer speeds of up to 25Mb to 97 per cent of South Yorkshire by the middle of 2012.

David Holt, Chief Executive of Digital Region, said: "This is great news, and a significant step forward for the region's digital presence."

He added that the firm has partnered with organisations local to South Yorkshire which believe the Digital Region scheme can "give them such a strong portfolio of services for both businesses and consumers".

The Lancashire Telegraph recently reported that BT is bringing super-fast internet services to towns including Colne, Darwen, Great Harwood and Padiham.
