Boost broadband speed
The Lincolnshire County Council is urging local communities and businesses not to miss out on government funding to boost broadband speeds in their area.
There are currently two schemes that provide funding for broadband improvements in rural areas.
The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme provides grants of £500 - £2,500 towards the cost of full fibre broadband, which offers much faster and more reliable speeds.
Hard-to-reach communities and businesses could also benefit from the Rural Gigabit Connectivity Scheme, which is targeted at those areas that are unlikely to benefit from private sector investment in the near future.
Local organisations, such as schools and parish councils, can bid for funding to install a gigabit connection to a public building, which will in turn make the surrounding area more likely to attract commercial investment.
