Beware of Computer Scams
  1. If you receive a  phone call purporting to be from Microsoft support or similar, to say that your computer has sent them a critical error message, ignore it even if they have your phone number and name!

    They will get you to visit a particular web page in your web browser. Something on the web page will enable them to have control of your computer. They can then load spyware, steal passwords or just use your machine to relay other illegal content, for example.

    If you think it might be genuine (VERY unlikely!), thank the caller, put the phone down, then contact your computer supplier or Microsoft Support yourself - see http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/security/online-privacy/avoid-phone-scams.aspx

  • SuperFast Broadband for Hampsthwaite?

At the The Broadband North Yorkshire Conference 2012 it was announced that North Yorkshire has won the race to deploy fibre broadband using Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) funds and has agreed a contract with BT to deliver this.

The contract states that 90 per cent of county premises will access to fibre broadband by the end of 2014 - so it WILL happen. The remaining 10% will get at least 2Mb by a variety of means - these are likely to be farms and isolated areas.

Although it is too early to be specific, Hampsthwaite, being so close to Harrogate, is unlikely to be in the 10% and it is probable that BT will be putting fibre into the village. It emerged during the Conference that it is the nature of these projects that progress is not linear - i.e. the bulk of work is done early, leaving the awkward bits until last. This gives some cause to be optimistic about when we might benefit.

You will know things are happening when you start to see BT vans with the NY SuperFast logo in the area.

Full details of the project and a the single channel of communication/information is on the web at www.superfastnorthyorkshire.com

Residents are  strongly advised to register on the site to maintain our momentum of interest but this is not yet another 'market research' exercise. Indeed, the BT contract calls for an 'open network' which means that your existing ISP will be able to bring you super-fast broadband services over it if you choose not to go BT (Plusnet for example could do so at £16.49 per month).

Existing local community schemes (eg such as Darley) and any new such schemes will have to be integrated into the BT network and Super Fast North Yorkshire (SFNY) will decide on the best solution.

Conference follow-up email from Julian Smith MP

From the point of view of the Members of Parliament, it is the end of the first chapter where we have taken the lead in securing money from Government and ensuring a rigorous procurement process took place.

BT and North Yorkshire County Council launched the ‘Superfast North Yorkshire’ project which will deliver at least 2Mbps to every property in North Yorkshire and at least 25Mbps to nine in ten properties. It is now over to BT and North Yorkshire County Council to deliver on the promises which have been made and outline, in more detail, what you can expect and when.

They launched their website – www.superfastnorthyorkshire.com – which they promise will be the portal for information for homes and businesses.
