Superfast North Yorkshire project boosts North Yorkshire economy by £220 million
The first phase of the Superfast North Yorkshire project, which is helping to extend the availability of high speed fibre broadband, has contributed £36 million to the local economy – and this could grow to £220 million in the next two years.
The figures are based on a variety of factors including changes in internet use by businesses connected to fibre and the resulting impact on turnover, profitability and employment.
The independent analysis by Regeneris Consulting highlights a range of benefits for businesses connected to the new fibre broadband network. The report shows a large proportion of small and medium sized firms have become more productive and grown as a result of their new fibre connection. The analysis indicates that one new job has been created for every ten firms connected to the network.
