Lincolnshire Broadband Programme

Lincolnshire County Council began the Lincolnshire Broadband Programme in March 2013 and have since enabled 160,115 premises.

Despite seeing an increase of 50% connectivity over the last five years, the Council still has a little way to go as currently only superfast broadband coverage is only 93% across the county – this is below the national average of 95%. They hope to reach 97% coverage by December 2019 by pushing the service to the last 13,500 properties in the current deployment plan.

The government are introducing a Universal Service Obligation meaning everyone will have the legal right to high speed broadband by 2020 in the hopes of helping bring everyone into the digital age.
