Superfast West Yorkshire and York Broadband

The Superfast West Yorkshire and York Broadband programme is delivered in partnership with Openreach and enables access to reliable, superfast broadband to thousands of homes and businesses across our region.

The Superfast West Yorkshire and York programme is now in its second phase and will target the final five per cent of postcode areas without access to superfast broadband.

These include the hardest to reach rural areas and urban areas not already targeted through either a commercial rollout or the previous phases of superfast broadband delivery. The second phase, delivered in partnership with Openreach, will enable 44,623 businesses and homes to connect to superfast broadband. 

To date, the overall programme has provided the opportunity for more than 100,000 premises including more than 5,000 businesses to connect to superfast broadband.  

Phase Two of the programme is being delivered across Bradford, Calderdale, City of York, Kirklees, Leeds, and Wakefield. 

The programme will deliver £113 million in net Gross Value Added (GVA) for the West Yorkshire and York area and offers a return on public sector investment of £8.21 to every £1 invested.
