North Yorkshire is making excellent progress in developing a high-speed rural broadband network, according to MPs.

York Outer MP Julian Sturdy and Culture and Media Secretary Jeremy Hunt both praised the region's efforts at the North Yorkshire Broadband Vision Conference, which saw local businesses gathering together to discuss the future of broadband in North Yorkshire, reports the York Press.

Mr Sturdy said: "In just over seven months, our region has made terrific progress on the path towards full and fast internet connectivity."

He added that North Yorkshire is 'leading the way' in terms of developing the next generation of broadband technology.

Last year, North Yorkshire was chosen as one of four areas which will receive funding for rural broadband connections as part of the Comprehensive Spending Review.

Burley in Yorkshire was recently named as one of the winning towns in BT's Race to Infinity competition, which will see it being fitted with super-fast broadband early next year.
