Villagers in a number of remote North Yorkshire outposts are to be provided with fibre broadband connections, it has been announced.

NYnet has announced plans to equip households and business in Farndale, Blakey, Bransdale, Rudland, Beadlam Rigg and East Moors with next-generation broadband technology.

The sparsely-populated communities currently suffer from extremely slow or non-existent broadband access, but NYnet, alongside Moorsweb and LN Communications, intends to rectify the situation.

David Cullen, Chief Executive Officer of NYnet, said he was delighted the company is able to make such a difference to people's lives.

"North Yorkshire is England's largest county and has some of the most remote villages in the country," he added.

"Following a pilot in Newton-on-Rawcliffe, Moorsweb is the second project in a series of community broadband initiatives that NYnet plans to introduce in rural villages throughout North Yorkshire in 2011."

NYnet is a government-controlled private enterprise formed by North Yorkshire County Council with funding from Yorkshire Forward.
