Superfast Beverley Project
Residents of Beverley and the surrounding villages now have a choice of superfast broadband provider. Quickline’s mast site on Beverley Westwood means we can compete with other Internet Service Providers.
The new wireless internet mast offers residents and businesses within a 10 mile radius, an alternative to traditional telecoms with connection speeds of up to 50Mbps.
The Superfast Beverley project is a commercial extension into East Yorkshire, streaming from the £2.5m Northern Lincolnshire project, where Quickline deployed state-of-the-art equipment as part of a Government pilot to test superfast wireless broadband, in one of the hardest to reach areas of the UK. Now the infrastructure feeds across the banks of the Humber, via Riplingham and Beverley to provide connection speeds of up to 50Mbps, via over the air technology.
Quickline is investing a further £1.8m over the next 12 months to expand the superfast network in the Humber Region.
Steve Jagger, managing director of Quickline says:
“Although our service has been available in urban areas, we had focussed on hard to reach rural areas. The Superfast Beverley project has been months in the planning, we have been scouting a location to give us the height required to reach out across the whole town.”
“Unlike traditional telecoms, our technology works without a telephone landline, these are in rapid decline as most people use mobile phones to communicate. Quickline does offer voice over the internet service (VOIP) which enables people to make international calls at no extra cost and this option has been very popular with our customers who want to keep in touch with friends and relatives, particularly overseas.”
“This is a very exciting time for us and our business is continuing to grow at a phenomenal rate, due to the technology we use, excellent customer service and having the right team on-board.”
Quickline’s Superfast Beverley project forms part of the East Yorkshire development programme. Further roll-outs will be announced in due course.
