Andrew Percy MP talks rural broadband with Quickline
Brigg and Goole MP Andrew Percy has met with wireless broadband provider Quickline as part of his campaign for faster internet access in his rural constituency.

The politician spoke to Steve Jagger, owner of the Hessle-based communications firm, to learn more about the services that are currently available in the area, reports the Epworth Bells.

According to the latest Ofcom figures, super-fast broadband is available to just 41 per cent of properties throughout North Lincolnshire.

However, Quickline has been busy extending its local wireless coverage and currently offers speeds of between 10 and 40Mbps across the Isle of Axholme area.

Mr Percy pointed out the government's primary focus has been on the rollout of fixed-line super-fast broadband, but argued that wireless technology also has a part to play in improving the country's connectivity.

"A number of operators offer wireless broadband to our area, including Quickline, and I would urge anyone struggling with poor broadband speeds to look at these options more closely," he commented.
