Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can gain significant benefit from accessing next-generation broadband, it has been claimed.

Colin Davie, Executive Member for Economic Development at Lincolnshire County Council (LCC), said super-fast speeds will mean that SMEs will be able to improve the way they operate.

They can take advantage of global connections with customers and suppliers, and form stronger business relationships, he claimed.

"In addition, they can utilise advances in digital technology to both enhance and improve efficiency and develop new processes, products and services," Mr Davie stated.

LCC has teamed up with Creative England on the Onlincolnshire project, an initiative which seeks to provide business funding for connectivity upgrades.

"We’re already providing a wide range of support to help our firms make the most of digital technology, and this project will take things another step forward," Mr Davie stated.

"Over the next few years we’ll be dramatically improving broadband speeds across the country and we want to make sure that local businesses are in pole position to reap the benefits."
