Project on track

The superfast broadband project is progressing through North Lincolnshire and plans are for it to ensure 90 per cent of people will receive superfast broadband by 2015.

The project means around 30,000 homes and businesses in North Lincolnshire including the Brigg area are set to benefit from superfast broadband.

The Northern Lincs Broadband public consultation started last month and will run until February 1.

The council would like people’s responses to the public consultation document, which can be found on the superfast broadband pages on the North Lincolnshire Council website.

Coun Neil Poole, cabinet member for Policy and Resources, said: “The public consultation document shows that currently not all of the locations within Northern Lincolnshire have the same access to broadband.

“It also highlights the areas that could potentially benefit from the project.”

North Lincolnshire Council joined up with North East Lincolnshire Council to deliver the project across Northern Lincolnshire and has received £2.6m from the government towards this, with a supplemented through the European Regional Development Fund.
