Full fibre broadband rollout to connect over 55,000 rural homes and businesses

East Yorkshire-based rural broadband provider, Quickline Communications, has unveiled its 2023 fibre rollout plan, with a target to transform internet access and speeds for tens of thousands of users.

The programme will see Quickline bring broadband speeds of up to 1 Gbps (Gigabits per second) to more than 55,000 homes and businesses this year.

Spanning areas from the North Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire Dales, to the Lincolnshire Wolds, Quickline’s fibre plan for this year covers some of the hardest communities to reach.

Lee Allison, chief operating officer, said: “Building on the momentum from last year, 2023 is going to be even bigger and better for Quickline and the communities we serve.

“Rural communities have been crying out for fast, reliable broadband for far too long. Our mission is to provide that and to close the digital divide between urban and rural areas.

Many of the rural communities in the rollout plan have previously suffered with broadband speeds as low as 30 Mbps. (Megabits per second)

Chris Akrill, Head of Fibre to the Premises operations at Quickline, said: “Our fibre broadband is transforming the internet experience for customers living in even the most remote of areas.

“Having good broadband is no longer a luxury – it’s essential in so many ways. We understand that and that’s why we’re bringing fibre to even the most difficult of areas to connect.”
