Yorkshire-based ISP Quickline is rolling out its wireless broadband service to Lincoln. 

The superfast wireless broadband service is aimed at residents in the city and beyond who cannot get fast connections from other ISPs in the area. 

The company has installed a mast in a block of flats in the city to give subscribers connection speeds of up to 40Mbps, using a combination of fibre optic lines and wireless technology.

Gaynor Osborne-Lawn, director of Quickline Communications told local publication the Lincolnite: “We continue to invest in our own private network that has been built on leading edge technology. 

“The new mast in Lincoln will service rural business parks, town centre businesses and residential areas that had until now, been subjected to a poor quality connection in some cases.” 

“Theses areas can now enjoy broadband that is up to 20 times faster than they were used to. We have found that this positive impact is transforming the way people live and work. Business competitiveness is enhanced and residents are able to shop online, participate in online gaming, deal with bills, banking and communicate via social media.” 

Last year, Quickline bought out local community broadband company Linpop. The ISP has recently expanded its wireless broadband service to Doncaster as well. 

Quickline was also busy last year installing wireless broadband in the north of the county to benefit rural residents of West Lindsay. For the sum of just £15,000, the local authority was able to bring 20Mbps to areas that were langushing on sub-1Mbps speeds.
