"Fibre broadband offers local firms and households new ways of working flexibly and allow large data and video files to be sent and received almost instantly. Other benefits include access to high quality videoconferencing and better back-up of computer systems."
North Lincolnshire Council is currently involved in a high-profile campaign to improve RURAL broadband speeds. This is unconnected with the work being undertaken by BT.
