North Yorkshire is set to become one of the first counties in the UK to achieve 100 per cent fibre broadband coverage.The injection of an additional £10 million in funding will ensure all homes and businesses in the largely-rural county have access to fibre-optic cables for super-fast broadband by 2017.North Yorkshire County Council's executive is to add another £3 million to the Superfast North Yorkshire (SFNY) programme to accelerate the rollout, while Broadband Delivery UK is contributing another £3 million, and the European Regional Development Fund and BT are offering £2 million each.County Councillor Carl Les, chairman of the SFNY programme and deputy leader of the council, said the new finance is "a massive step forward" in the council's aim to establish high-speed broadband accessibility for 100 per cent of North Yorkshire."With this extra funding, we will be able to penetrate to the more remote parts of our very rural county, to communities and businesses which hitherto had little hope of reaping the advantages and rewards of high-speed internet access," he stated.Already 400 fibre broadband cabinets have been switched on in North Yorkshire, with more than 25 new areas gaining next-generation connectivity each month.Written by Steve Wilkin for Comms Express, number one for network cables on the net

Tales from the 'Comms Blog'
Now not for one moment am I trying to pull the wool over your eyes (love that saying!) and have you believe that I was a model student at school. Much of my studying and learning has occurred after ditching the school tie and venturing out into the world. Yet, like I am sure many of us I wish for my children to follow another path and apply themselves at school. It is a conversation we often have here at Comms Express and the importance of a good education, so it was with interest that I learnt about a new way for students to get the grey matter working. It would seem that the phrase get the ‘thinking cap’ is to become a reality to help students cramming for those all-important exams. American psychologists have come up with a headband with two electrodes, these are attached to the top of the head and cheek area and then 20 minutes of direct currents are then applied. Apparently the only abnormal feeling was that of a slight tingling and itching. The report in the Journal of Neuroscience reveals that a mild direct current travels from the anodal electrode, through the skin, muscle, bones and brain and out through the corresponding cathodal electrode to complete the circuit. Granted this sounds almost like some barbaric Victorian ‘health cure’ but Robert Reinhart and Geoffrey Woodman, the two professors from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, behind the idea are firm in their belief that  the ‘thinking cap’ will aid us to solve problems quickly and efficiently. Professor Reinhart said, ‘We wanted to reach into your brain and causally control your inner critic. Also claiming fears of the safety of the experiment, “It’s one of the safest ways to noninvasively stimulate the brain.” Tests revealed that wearing the cap during an exam helped with working and solving mistakes they had made. Mr. Reinhart said, “So when we up-regulate that process, we can make you more cautious, less error-prone, and more adaptable to new or changing situations, which is pretty extraordinary.” So thinking of the ramifications when and if the tests and research can be revealed to the public has me excited. This could be a way forward for those suffering with schizophrenia and ADHD, which of course we would all applaud. Yet also I have a little trepidation. Trepidation you say? Yes; sure to eradicate severe mistakes in life and importantly within the work place would of course curry favour with many however… what of those mistakes we’ve all made that lead on to something wonderful The mistakes that buck the norm and conventional way of doing something; what would become of this in the future where conventional thoughts are kept in line by the ‘Thinking Cap’? History is littered with those ‘happy mistakes’, those eureka moments that have led to success. I’m thinking of Penicillin, which only came about when Sir Alexander Fleming threw away his Petri dish and saw that the mould was killing all of the bacteria. The pacemaker only came about when electrical engineer found that a heart could be started when receiving gentle stimulation.  I could go on … And lest we forget the humble crisp created by George Crum; looking to make a plate of fried potatoes his customers kept requesting them thinner and crisper and hey presto – the crisp! So while I welcome progress, we thrive on it here at Comms, I’ll await to see how well the thinking cap develops and helps future generations. Until next time...
