Super-fast broadband is set to arrive in Barnsley after the town's council signed a five-year deal to obtain the technology.

The £1 million project, designed to generate public service savings of £100,000 per year, is set to be completed by 2012.

Digital Region Network, a collaboration between South Yorkshire councils, will deliver the project, which is designed to benefit both homes and local businesses.

"Our network 'future-proofs' the council's communications, providing a technology foundation that greatly supports Barnsley's vision of getting its residents and businesses online," said David Carr, Chief Executive of Digital Region.

"Barnsley now has the infrastructure to support a thriving digital economy, which creates employment and enables residents and businesses to benefit from cutting edge services."

Earlier this week, NYnet announced that all units on the new business park at Castle Howard, North Yorkshire, will be equipped with super-fast broadband.
