A campaign to speed up broadband in homes and businesses across Lincolnshire is “making excellent progress” on its first anniversary.
The claim was made by Owen Moody, East Midlands regional director for BT, as part of onlincolnshire, a campaign led by Lincolnshire County Council to achieve better and more reliable broadband connections in all parts of the county.
So far, almost 14,000 homes and businesses in places such as Donington, Holbeach, Moulton and Surfleet have benefited from a £4.15 million investment by the Government, county and seven district councils, including South Holland, to provide superfast broadband.
Mr Moody said: “This is a complex project but thanks to the dedication and hard work within BT and the councils, our efforts are now really starting to pay off.
“The project is making excellent progress and it’s great to see more Lincolnshire homes and businesses able to take advantage of this transformational technology.”
Coun Richard Davies, executive member for information technology at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to bring better broadband to so many homes and businesses already.”
