Fibrestream have begun work to deliver fibre optic broadband to two small villages in Lincolnshire. The two villages were identified by an ISPreview reader on the first of the month as Ashby De La Launde and Bloxholm near Lincoln.
Friday saw the commencement of work as road digging began by contractors to deliver the fibre optic cable to get them connected to the high-speed broadband world. A video of the works can be seen on the Fibrestream blog. The two villages will be connected up to receive Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) which will offer speeds up to 100Mbps. The service is expected to cost between £20 and £30 a month and install costs will vary up to £150 depending on how involved customers are willing to be (such as digging their own trenches for the fibre cable through their garden.
