Sleaford village businesses in line for faster broadband

This story is over

Businesses in Kirkby La Thorpe will soon be able to benefit from faster broadband following a grant of £10,489 from Sleaford Renewable Energy Liaison Panel.

Once installed, this will bring faster internet speeds than currently experienced in the village because of ever-increasing pressure placed on the Sleaford exchange it is currently connected to.

It will also mean the village is on any schedule for improved speeds as and when they happen.

Since 2013, the Sleaford Renewable Energy Fund has awarded a total of £78,840.50 to local schools and a wide range of community-based organisations and projects in Sleaford and Kirkby La Thorpe.

Kirkby La Thorpe Parish Council Chairman Phil White said: “Kirkby la Thorpe Parish Council is delighted with the news that funding from the Renewable Energy Plant has been awarded to the village’s Broadband Project.

“This means that businesses, residents and, of course, the school will be able to access the internet speedily and easily, an essential nowadays for students, people working at home and anyone accessing services.”
