Thanks to a multi-million pound partnership between Lincolnshire councils and BT, over 50,000 homes in the county can now enjoy better broadband.

The Onlincolnshire project has been made possible due to funding from the government and European Regional Development Fund. It is on target to provide at least 89% of all properties with access to superfast fibre broadband by April 2016.

The county council is also planning a second phase of improvements that aims to extend superfast coverage to 95% by the end of 2017.

Councillor Richard Davies, Executive Member for IT, said: “I’m delighted we’ve been able to hit this milestone moment – right on schedule. We’re now bringing faster broadband to over 1,000 Lincolnshire properties a week, which is a fantastic achievement. To get better speeds, people in these upgraded areas should now contact their broadband provider to check for availability and upgrade their contract. Better broadband brings a wealth of opportunities to both businesses and residents alike, and we’re determined that Lincolnshire won’t miss out.”
