West Lindsey churches getting involved in broadband rollout
The Church of St Radegund is the latest to have a wireless broadband transmitter installed to its roof.More than 30 churches, village halls and other community buildings in West Lindsey are doing their bit for the rollout of better broadband, playing host to wireless transmitters to help to deliver the technology to local residents.
The Worksop Guardian reports that people based in more rural parts of the area are situated too far away from the green roadside cabinets used to connect others to the fibre network, meaning an alternative solution was required.
West Lindsey District Council has teamed up with Quickline to bring improved internet connections to local residents and businesses, by installing Wi-Fi transmitters to the roofs of various community buildings - the Church of St Radegund in Grayingham is the latest to sign up to the cause.
Councillor Alan Caine of West Lindsey District Council commented: "Having a decent connection is boosting the aspirations of our local people, who can now join the information superhighway.
"The lives of people with rural businesses and those working from home are literally being transformed."
