Quickline pledges 100 per cent coverage by end of year
Independent ISP Quickline Communications has announced plans to bring super-fast broadband access to parts of rural Lincolnshire that are currently suffering from low-quality connections.
The Yorkshire-based firm hopes to achieve 100 per cent coverage of these blackspots by the end of 2012, benefitting businesses and residences in Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Laceby.
These towns and the surrounding areas could be able to access speeds of up to 40Mbs when Quickline has completed its infrastructure expansion.
Director Gaynor Lawn said the company has invested in its own network because it allows it to "be highly competitive in the broadband marketplace without asking for government investment".
"The new mast at Caistor marks a significant milestone for Quickline as the final, easy to reach part of the Humber region," she concluded, noting that this is likely to have a positive effect on a number of businesses in the area.
Originally launched in 2007, Quickline has expanded rapidly across the Humber and has plans to move into more markets across the UK in the coming years.
