Enhanced broadband 'a lifeline' for Lincolnshire
Businesses across Lincolnshire are crying out for improved broadband services.The delivery of improved broadband services has been described as "a lifeline, not a luxury" by business leaders across the county.
Local publication the Sleaford Target reports delays in the rollout of next-generation broadband across the area have hit many businesses hard and the council must therefore increase its efforts to get the ball rolling on infrastructure development in many parts of Lincolnshire.
Councillor Lindsey Cawrey told the news provider: "I was making a purchase the other day and a business owner told me he couldn't accept card payments because the broadband was down, so it's not a luxury - these businesses are losing trade because of broadband failures."
This is an issue that has been ongoing in the area for some time, but with a commitment to deliver superfast broadband to 95 per cent of homes and businesses by the end of 2017, there really is now no time like the present to get things moving.
