Multi-million pound plans to provide superfast broadband for at least 90 per cent of Lincolnshire by the end of 2015 have gone out for consultation.

Lincolnshire County Council is welcoming views on its plans to roll out high speed internet access for the vast majority of the county, with standard broadband guaranteed for the remainder.

A £57 million scheme, it be a joint-project between the private and public sector.

Cllr Kelly Smith, executive member for finance and human resources, said: “This is a chance for residents, local businesses, broadband suppliers and others to have their say on what we have planned.

“Good broadband is vital for business growth, for all residents accessing services and for young people looking to download learning materials.

“That’s why the county council is investing £10m in this project, with a further £4m coming from the district authorities.”

All comments should be sent to: Lincolnshire Broadband Programme Team, Lincolnshire County Council, 13 The Avenue, Lincoln, LN1 1PA.

Alternatively, you can email your response to BroadbandPCDResponse@lincolnshire.gov.uk.

Responses must be received no later than 5pm on September 16.
