Rural broadband specialist Quickline’s new in-house Build Team has connected its first community.

The newly-established infrastructure team is responsible for building the fibre networks that connect villages and hamlets to Quickline’s game-changing broadband.

A hamlet in North Lincolnshire, called Dragonby, has become the first rural community to be connected by Quickline’s own Build Team.

Residents in the ancient hamlet, which has fewer than 60 homes, can now access broadband speeds of up to 1 Gbps for the first time.

It means residents can stream, shop and socialise online without fear of buffering or their connection dropping out.

Quickline CEO Sean Royce said: “Having a fast, reliable broadband service is essential for staying in touch with family and friends, home entertainment, online shopping and so much more.

“Our full fibre broadband unlocks game-changing speeds and provides a rock-solid connection, no matter what your needs are or where you live.

“We’re thrilled that residents in Dragonby can now join our full fibre network and it’s all thanks to our new in-house Build Team. The team has been working hard to lay the cables and make the connections to homes in the hamlet.

“We hope residents in Dragonby enjoy their enhanced digital life with Quickline.”

Quickline delivers fast, reliable broadband to rural communities across North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire.

Driven by a belief that people should not be penalised for where they choose to live, and a mission to tackle the digital divide between rural and urban areas, Quickline champions communities such as Dragonby.

Quickline’s Build Team will play an integral part in the company’s 2023 fibre rollout plan.
Lee Jackson, Quickline Build Team Manager, said: “Having an in-house Build Team is crucial to ensure we have the resources and the capability to meet our ambitious full fibre rollout targets.

“We’re aiming to bring full fibre broadband to more than 55,000 homes and businesses in 2023.

“Our highly qualified and experienced Build Team means we can accelerate our rollout of full fibre in rural communities, without being reliant on others which sets us apart from many internet providers.”

Andrew Percy, MP for the Brigg and Goole constituency which covers Dragonby, paid a visit to the hamlet to meet members of the Quickline team.

He said: “It’s clear that some of the big providers have no interest in communities such as Dragonby.

“That’s why it’s so important companies like Quickline ensure rural communities are not disadvantaged by poor internet connections.

“I’m grateful for the investment from Quickline, which gives people access to what is now an essential service.”
