Quickline Expands Full Fibre Broadband to Rural Communities, Revolutionizing Internet Access

Quickline, a prominent broadband provider, has rapidly brought reliable full fibre broadband with speeds of up to 1 Gbps to previously underserved rural areas in North Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, and North Lincolnshire. This expansion has enabled over 10,000 homes and businesses in rural communities to access Quickline’s rapidly growing fibre broadband network, significantly enhancing their digital experiences.

Julian Chalk, Head of Network Enablement and Engagement at Quickline, emphasized the transformative impact of their fibre service on communities that have long endured slow and inconsistent broadband services. In just eight months, Quickline has connected more than 20 communities to their full fibre broadband as part of an accelerated rollout program.

Quickline’s full fibre broadband delivers high speeds directly to homes and businesses, ensuring a superior online experience. Unlike some providers that connect fibre to a local cabinet and then rely on outdated copper cables for the last leg of the connection, Quickline’s fibre broadband is directly delivered to customers’ premises, guaranteeing both high quality and high-speed internet.

The newly connected communities benefiting from Quickline’s fibre service include Burton Upon Stather and Thealby north of Scunthorpe, North and South Killingholme, and East Halton west of Grimsby, Digby, Rowston, and Scopwick south of Lincoln, Carlton, Camblesforth, Newland, Barlow, and Drax south of Selby, and Deighton south of York. These additions encompass more than 7,000 homes and businesses gaining access to Quickline full fibre broadband.

Residents and businesses in these areas previously experienced broadband speeds as low as 3 Mbps, with typical speeds hovering around 36 Mbps at best. Quickline’s fibre rollout has unlocked speeds of up to 1 Gbps across these rural locations, drastically improving connectivity.

Additionally, Quickline is offering customers a two-year price freeze, providing peace of mind amidst price increases by other major UK broadband providers. While these competitors are preparing to raise their prices by up to 14 percent in April, Quickline is committed to maintaining its tariffs at the same level for 24 months.

To engage with these newly connected communities, Quickline’s engagement team is organizing various events and initiatives. For instance, in Burton Upon Stather, they recently conducted a balloon hunt throughout the village, offering three months of free broadband to participants who found the hidden balloons.
