NextGenUs UK CIC and AFL Telecommunications have installed a fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network in Ashby de la Launde.

Residents of the small Lincolnshire village will soon be able to benefit from super-fast 100MB fibre optic broadband in their homes.

Around 60 homes and three businesses in the area have started on-site digging to enable them to be connected to the fibre network, which is to be installed around the village shortly.

Guy Jarvis, chief executive of NextGenUs UK CIC, said that high-speed internet has arguably become the fourth utility and the benefits of it can be seen in every aspect of modern life.

"Unlike urban areas which represent a commercially viable investment to large telecommunications companies, the rural communities in 'not spot' and 'slow spot' areas with fewer subscribers won't receive the same level of investment," Mr Jarvis added.

Last week, Birch Green in Hertfordshire gained super-fast broadband, which improved speeds in the village from less than 2MB to 40MB.
