A fibre optic broadband provider is to significantly improve the service received by a small lifeboat community in Yorkshire.

Fibrestream is to install a cable to the lifeboat station at Spurn Point, which will provide the full-time Humber lifeboat crew members and their families with a super-fast broadband connection.

As reported by the Yorkshire Post, the broadband provider is hoping that the installation of the cable will highlight how super-fast internet can be delivered to rural areas.

Guy Jarvis of Fibrestream told the newspaper: "We're saying that we can provide next-generation internet access to the most remote rural location in Yorkshire, so we can provide a service to other locations which are less remote. We're proving a point."

Currently, the 22 residents of the community have had to make do with a very slow dial up connection.

Work to install the fibre optic cable is due to start this weekend.
