Fibre Broadband on Its Way!

You will have noticed a lot of BT Openreach operatives and vans in the village recently – well, the good news is that fibre optic cables have been laid from the exchange at Lastingham through to Rosedale Abbey, with work ongoing to extend coverage through the village and up to Thorgill.

Once the contractors have completed the fibre cable laying, it is expected that customers will be able to connect to the network by late July/early August to receive up to 100mps broadband service. More details are being sought and will be published as soon as known.
