North Lincs hits super-fast broadband survey target
North Lincolnshire Council (NLC) has reached its target for responses to its super-fast broadband surveys, but is calling for more people to support the scheme.

The local authority revealed 5,000 residents and 500 businesses have completed the polls, which are designed to identify levels of demand for faster broadband access.

Now it has outlined the areas that are most in need of next-generation broadband, the council will ask suppliers to bid for the delivery contract.

By asking residents to keep their responses coming in, NLC is hopeful of further strengthening its business case.

Neil Poole, cabinet member for policy and resources at the council, said: "We've been campaigning to get super-fast broadband for some months now, so I'm really pleased that we've reached the target. 

"Everyone has worked really hard and I want to thank you all for your support."

According to the latest Ofcom figures, super-fast broadband is currently available to two-fifths of properties across North Lincolnshire.

The local authority is looking to boost access to 90 per cent of the district by the end of 2015.
