£1.8m broadband boost for 1,500 rural North Lincolnshire homes and businesses

Quickline is focussed on delivering improved broadband connectivity to more than 1,500 rural homes and businesses in North Lincolnshire where a significant digital divide remains as part of a contract with North Lincolnshire Council.

The project has a specific interest in providing businesses with better connectivity and will see broadband speeds of 100Mbps+ in the more isolated areas of North Lincolnshire by 2022.

The project has been funded by £1m from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and £400,000 from North Lincolnshire Council. Quickline is also committing £400,000 of network investment to support the roll-out.
