Quickline Expand 50Mbps Wireless Broadband Cover in West Lindsey

Fixed wireless ISP Quickline claims to have boosted its existing 50Mbps broadband network coverage in the Lincolnshire (England) district of West Lindsey, which should mean that they’re able to reach some of the remotest outlying rural homes and businesses in the area.

A spokesperson for the ISP said, “In the past, some of the remote houses, farms and businesses that were too far away from the street cabinets used by traditional telecoms companies, were out of reach and these properties were subject to very poor internet connections, in some cases could receive no connection at all.”

Sadly the provider hasn’t revealed precisely what they’ve done or which new areas are covered by the latest upgrade, although there are some quotes from residents of East Stockwith and the surrounding areas. The development complements the other recent expansion of Quickline’s network via the Government’s Broadband Delivery UK pilot (here).

David Forington, A Farmer in East Stockwith, said:

“Our previous connection with BT business broadband was frequently problematic making it very difficult to run our farming business, as over time more and more emphasis has been placed on using the internet for payroll, VAT online banking, etc. The service was about 1.0 Mb but also unreliable with frequent faults.

We are about 3 miles from a fibre cabinet in the village of Morton but BT had never given an official time scale for a high speed service. I personally don’t think they will ever bring it here as it is probably not financially viable.

We heard about Quickline through the local press and village newsletter and attended an open evening in the local pub. It was relatively simple to install and works very well. We are very pleased with the system and able to use the internet to run our business and use it in the home.”

According to Quickline’s website, the installation fee for their service is usually £150 (likely to be less in the BDUK pilot areas, not least due to the 2Mbps USC subsidy scheme) and the monthly rental options are as follows (remember that you don’t require separate fixed line rental for wireless connections).

    The fact that their Coverage Checker is broken doesn’t inspire much confidence.

    This is the solution for the last 1-2% it can be done and unlike Satellite it can be expanded upon in future and doesn’t suffer the terrible latency issues anywhere near as much

      Don’t disagree, though the challenge with fixed wireless is the need to achieve line-of-sight to each property from the feeding node. This becomes ever more important as the “need for speed” grows.

    I’ve been with Quickline since October 2013, primarily on their 10megabit product but now upgraded to the 4G up to 100megabit product. Since that time I have enjoyed fast broadband with low latency, typically 20-25 millisecs … no stoppages or slowdowns due to interleave or algorithmic controls … no outages during thunderstorms or any other types of weather. It just works .. When all and sundry is “waiting” for BT to install Infinity because they’ve been brainwashed into believing it’s the creme de la creme … well they’re in for a surprise. Because the last mile copper (or aluminium)cables in the Lincolnshire countryside are much to be desired and the “lucky” few who have received Infinity … are complaining about the speeds. Which of course they will do, because if you add the last mile copper cable issues to the fact that it’s algorithm run, together with line profile banding … BT’s chinese-walled business concept linked to Ofcom’s regulations will see most problems just fester forever. Personally, give me wireless broadband anyday … no algorithms,no line profile banding, no problem AND 24 hour support if needed. Well done Quickline …
