Quickline brings over 50,000 rural homes up to speed with game-changing broadband in 2022

Rita and Des Horsfall, from Midgely, West Yorkshire, are among the thousands of people who have had their online experience transformed by Quickline Communications in 2022.

Tens of thousands of households suffering with poor internet speeds have had their online experience transformed by rural broadband provider Quickline Communications in 2022.

A strong year of growth from Quickline has seen nearly 100 mast sites going live providing lightning fast broadband across North and West Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire, connecting 2,000 rural communities with game-changing broadband access and speeds.

It means over 50,000 homes have seen their broadband speed at least tripled this year. Many households previously with less than 30 Mbps speeds are now receiving 100 Mbps or more. Many now have access to gigabit speeds because of Quickline.

East Yorkshire-based Quickline is transforming the online experience of residents and businesses in remote areas as it continues to invest heavily in its market-leading hybrid network, combining full fibre and 5G fixed wireless broadband.

Quickline’s commitment to rural broadband has seen it invest many millions of pounds in fibre rollout in 2022 as part of a commitment to pass over 500,000 poorly serviced rural premises. Additional funding has seen remote communities benefit from a 5G fixed wireless service.

Quickline CEO Sean Royce said: “This has been another big year for Quickline. We continue to expand our network of 5G masts and full fibre infrastructure to some of the most remote corners of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, going into areas other internet providers leave behind.

“Fast and reliable broadband is fundamental to modern life. We use it for work, for education, for entertainment, and for keeping in touch with family and friends.

“We believe passionately that everyone should have access to a high-quality, reliable broadband service, wherever they live, but many rural areas remain desperately poorly served.

“That leaves these communities disadvantaged economically, educationally and socially. That’s why we’re so passionate about connecting rural communities to the world of opportunities that fast, dependable internet access offers.”

Rita and Des Horsfall, who live in the village of Midgley in Calderdale, West Yorkshire, say their family’s broadband experience has been transformed by Quickline.

Rita said: “The service we received with our previous provider was dreadful. You would be on a work video call and you would be constantly dropping out and having issues. At times there were three of us working from home and it just didn’t work.

“I can now work comfortably in our attic and have had a three-hour online meeting when the connection never dropped out or faltered once.

“It doesn’t matter how many of us are working at the same time – or who is doing what – it just works.”
