Quickline Expand 50Mb Wireless Broadband in Lincolnshire via Upton Mast

Thursday, November 5th, 2015 (8:44 am) - Score 1,297

Internet provider Quickline has confirmed the installation of a new fixed wireless network mast in the small rural Lincolnshire (England) village of Upton (West Lindsey), which should deliver superfast broadband speeds of up to 50Mbps to the surrounding area.

The deployment is part of Quickline’s own commercial roll-out in the county and not the related / nearby £2m state aid supported pilot scheme with the Government’s Broadband Delivery UK programme (here) that covers more than 4,000 rural premises.

Apparently the new service, which is being assisted by the local All Saints Church, will benefit many rural communities beyond the 400+ strong population of Upton and neighbouring Kexby, not least because the wireless signal should extend for a 10 mile radius around their mast.

Steve Bolan, Quickline’s Operations Director, said (here):

This upgrade in Upton is part of our West Lindsey commercial rollout and encompasses many rural communities in Lincolnshire that have struggled with poor broadband for many years and welcome initiatives to improve the service for the residents and businesses. This latest installation is another example of how rural masts can be used for the benefit of the wider community.”

As usual Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) networks do not require customers to have a fixed phone line, although any locals who want to receive the service will still need to have an antenna installed on the outside of their homes (one-off cost £150).

All of the ISP’s packages offer an unlimited usage allowance via a hefty 24 month contract term, with prices starting at £29.99 per month for a 10Mbps service and rising to £59.99 if you want a 50Mbps connection. Granted it’s not cheap, but it’s not so bad when you consider that phone line rental is no longer a strict requirement.
