Educating businesses on fibre broadband is priority, says MP
A Lincolnshire MP has urged communities that are set to have fibre optic broadband introduced to their area to ensure local businesses are educated about the technology.

MP for Brigg and Goole Andrew Percy made the comments to the South Yorkshire Times following an event that was held to celebrate the rollout of the superfast service in the north and east of the county.

Mr Percy was joined by council representatives, local business owners and leaders of the next-generation project, which has been dubbed Northernlincs Broadband. 

They gathered at a local hotel to not only celebrate the news, but to outline and discuss the potential benefits of gaining access to high-speed connections.

He said: "Events like today’s will help local businesses learn how they can take advantage of faster broadband speeds to make a positive impact on the way they run their businesses.”

It is expected the Northerlincs Broadband rollout will be completed by the end of spring next year, barring any unforeseen technical issues on the part of service provider BT.
