Flixborough goes live

Chris Akrill

Rural broadband specialist Quickline Communications is connecting Flixborough residents and businesses with game-changing full fibre broadband.

The town, in North Lincolnshire, is the latest rural community Quickline is providing with lightning-fast, reliable broadband. It means that local homes and businesses will have access to fibre broadband for the first time.

Half of the households in the area pre-registered their interest in taking the service and, with the infrastructure for Quickline’s rollout already in place, the first customers are now being connected.

Homes and businesses in Flixborough who join the Quickline network will see typical broadband downloads increase from just 17 Mbps to gigabit-enabled speeds.

The rollout is part of Quickline’s ongoing programme to bring high-speed broadband to outlying communities, including in North Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire and North and West Yorkshire. Quickline is delivering “broadband for the better” to homes and businesses in rural communities through a market-leading hybrid network, combining fibre and fixed wireless broadband.

Flixborough features a mixture of village homes and commercial and industrial premises, with many based on Flixborough Industrial Estate.

Chris Akrill, Quickline’s head of fibre operations, said: “Having fast and easy internet access is now an essential part of daily life and we’re here to ensure it’s a reality for rural internet users. Our rollout in Flixborough is yet another example of Quickline delivering on our mission to reach communities that have been left behind by other providers.”
