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.
As part of the Superfast North Yorkshire project to deliver fibre broadband businesses in North Yorkshire and York have access to a range of free business support services to ensure they take full advantage of increased internet connectivity.
