What is MANY?

Mobile Access North Yorkshire believes everyone should have access to reliable connectivity – inside and outside the home. We believe that current connectivity is limiting rural developments, whether that is socially or economically. We want to listen to rural communities; to ensure connectivity can support these areas to thrive.

Through our project, we will uncover resident and business needs by understanding current problems through listening to and working with communities. We will explore the latest ways to bring and use connectivity and ensure we pay continuous attention to feedback, to ensure connectivity is of benefit.

Using this information, we aim to find connectivity solutions, which are right for rural areas now and into the future. We will suggest and test wireless solutions in partnership with the community. We will empower the rural voice, ensuring they are given a platform to be heard giving the Government a unique understanding of its next steps in supporting rural communities.
