Greater Lincs broadband plans to be unveiled at business summit
The Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership Business Summit will be used to outline local broadband plans.Plans to boost broadband provision across the Greater Lincolnshire area are set to be unveiled at a business conference later this month.
The inaugural Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Business Summit, which will take place next Friday (October 12th 2012), will outline the LEP's ambitions to improve local transport, utilities and broadband infrastructure.
Significant progress has already been achieved by the organisation toward the delivery of faster broadband.
The LEP played a key role in Lincolnshire County Council securing £14.3 million to bring next-generation broadband connectivity to Lincolnshire over the coming years. Under the proposals, every resident and business will be able to access super-fast broadband by 2017.
Both the Greater Lincolnshire and Humber LEPs are also backing a plan to deploy faster broadband in North Lincolnshire.
"We'll be using the summit as a chance to map out our ambitions over the next three years and gain valuable feedback from business leaders and politicians about what they think of the plans," explained Ruth Carver from the Greater Lincolnshire LEP secretariat.
