What is fibre optic broadband?
Superfast broadband connections enable users to surf the internet, download music and video, not to mention stream television at speeds that are massively higher than standard broadband connection.
Rather than broadband being delivered through the copper route, the new, faster broadband speeds are delivered by fibre optic cabling.

Who is involved?
We are funded by the five West Yorkshire authorities of Calderdale, Wakefield, Kirklees, Bradford and Leeds, by the City of York Council, the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), part of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and the European Regional Development Fund 2014 - 2020 England Operational Programme (ERDF).
The project is working with Openreach to improve and add the new infrastructure needed in the intervention area to improve digital connectivity in the region.
Our overall objective is to ensure that more residents and businesses can access faster, more reliable broadband for both social and economic benefit.
