Residents and businesses in the Trent Valley area of north Lincolnshire have gained access to a high-speed wireless broadband service, it has been reported.
All premises within ten miles of Hemswell Cliff Business Park and Ingham Cliff, where broadband provider LINPOP has located masts, will be able to use the service, reports ISPreview.co.uk.
Broadband packages offering up to 10Mb downloads and 1Mb uploads are now available to local web users from £29.95 per month.
Dr Vaughan Kitchin, Technical Director at security firm Tag Guard, explained that his company had made a "major investment" in the new Wi-Fi service.
This was due to the "total inability" of any existing broadband provider to deliver the internet service needed for Tag Guard's 24/7 control centre at Hemswell Cliff, he said.
"Over the last six years, we decided to back the investment to provide this unique service to our building, and in the process help other businesses struggling with the appalling broadband in the area," he stated.
"We are developing plans to extend this service beyond the initial area, as interest and demand rises, to potentially cover most of Lincolnshire."
Dr Kitchin commented that the county appears to have been omitted from current fibre broadband rollout plans.
