Play your part to increase broadband speeds in North Lincolnshire
North Lincolnshire Council is working with telecoms providers to bring ultrafast broadband to the area and needs local people to play their part by completing a simple form.
The council is asking people and businesses to register their interest in ultrafast broadband by filling in this form Opens in a new window .
Ultrafast broadband provides download speeds of up to 1Gbps (1000Mbps). It is also known as ‘full fibre’, ‘fibre to the premises’ and ‘fibre to the home’.
