LincsFibre, a local company, that plans to bring superfast broadband via fibre optic cable direct to your home. The company gave a presentation to residents of Winteringham on Wednesday 22nd November at the Village Hall.
The main message was that this scheme is replicating an existing scheme that runs in North Lancashire through an organisation called B4RN (barn) The local scheme is looking for rural communities who are struggling to get a reasonable broadband service in their community. They can offer speeds 15 times faster that is currently available.
This is a scheme that is owned by local people, built by local people, run by local people, for the benefit of local people. It required people with skills, equipment, tools and experience from within communities, to come forward and help make this a reality. If fact it is only with this help that the schene can be viable.
In North Lancashire they have used farmer's equipment to create channels and put in ducts to run the Fibre Optic cable to their villages and ultimately to their homes and a similar scheme would be needed in North Lincs. However, the advantages would be having a much better broadband service in the community, which would benefit all.
Cost is obviously an important factor and the current costs would be a one-off setup cost of £150 with a monthly cost of £50.
To find out more about the scheme or if you have any questions please email info@LincsFibre.co.uk with any questions you may have or visit the website at www.LincsFibre.co.uk which has lots of information, photos and videos.
