Broadband South Bank brings broadband to Grimsby
Thursday 19 June 2003 18:57:00 by Andrew Ferguson

Broadband South Bank is an initiative ran by Yorkshire Forward in conjunction with Business Link Humber, BT and other service providers. The aim of the project is to bring broadband to all parts of Humberside where there is proven demand, and assist local businesses to make the most of it.

The BT exchanges in Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Barton on Humber will have ADSL available from August 2003. Which will benefit 39,000 homes and 4,000 businesses.

The initiative goes a lot further for business users subscribing through the scheme, they could benefit from upto £300 towards a year's service costs. Additionally there is £200,000 of European funding to be used to inform potential broadband users in the North and North East areas of Lincolnshire of the benefits, and provide post install training/support. Of interest to other areas of the UK looking into schemes like this, analysis of the business benefits is planned for the end of the first year of the scheme.

If you are a business in the area then contact Business Link Humber on 0845 1243333 for further information.
