About us

Moorsweb is an innovative provider of rural broadband services to members of our community group. We operate  a wide area outdoor wireless network connected, via a fibre gateway, to the public internet.
We're a well-established organisation that has been operating since 2006.




• The Moorsweb broadband service has been running since 2006.
• The service is an outdoor wide area wireless network using radio technologies
• The service began with a satellite backhaul connection but now uses a fibre optic connection to the public internet.
• Moorsweb currently serves about 240 members in Bransdale, Farndale, Rosedale, Gillamoor, Rudland, Beadlam/Skiplam Rigg, East Moors and Appleton le Moors
Moorsweb was originally set-up with the benefit of a Yorkshire Forward grant for rural broadband. A grant from NYCC / NYnet / Ryedale District Council then funded a fibre backhaul facility and a significant upgrade for part of the network.  More recently, further improvements to our network have been funded from subscriptions.  This enables Moorsweb to provide super-fast 30Mbps connections to subscribers.



Moorsweb is overseen by Moors Web Link, a community association founded to provide rural broadband services in the North York Moors. 


Moors Web Link has appointed Barry Sunley of Farndale Free Range Ltd as the operator of the Moorsweb wireless network.  All subscribers to Moorsweb are automatically members of Moors Web Link.  Moors Web Link holds an AGM in the spring of each year.  Any member can volunteer for the Moors Web Link committee which is then elected at the AGM for the forthcoming year.


If you wish to become a committee member, please come along to the AGM or speak to one of the existing committee. New volunteers are always welcome.

The Moors Web Link committee meets regularly to oversee the running of Moorsweb by the operator, Barry Sunley.  Contact details for Barry Sunley are given to the left.
