Superfast Broadband comes to Lincolnshire
Today local authorities in the Lincolnshire area have assured businesses that they will have access to superfast business broadband no later than five years from now.
Councillor Kelly Smith commented on the plans “Improved broadband is vital for business growth, for all residents accessing services, including the growing number of silver surfers, and for young people looking to download learning materials,”
The county council’s proposed plans have been accept by the government to move forward to introduce the latest internet technology to the consumer and business market in Sleaford and the surround area.
The plans that have been proposed should benefit at least 90% of all premises’ in the area, giving them access to speeds of up to 24Mb/s (up to three times faster than today’s current broadband speeds) by the year 2015, and by 2017 superfast broadband will be available to all other areas in the county.
