Schools and colleges have joined the fight to bring superfast broadband to North and North East Lincolnshire.
All the area’s head teachers have been contacted about the work being done to secure a faster, more reliable broadband for northern Lincolnshire.
Schools and colleges are now asking staff and parents to complete the quick survey and help show there is a huge demand for better broadband.
So far 4,045 people have completed the survey and another 376 businesses.
School children and college students who live in areas where broadband is poor are hindered because their internet access is too slow.
Everything from completing homework to looking for a job is done online and many children need to access the internet in the evening when demand peaks.
Better broadband will help school pupils and students by improving their access to the internet.
John Leggott College is encouraging its staff and students to complete the survey through its own social network site and adverts on its display screens.
Complete the survey now: there's one for residents and another for businesses.
Penny Earl, ICT and E Learning consultant at North Lincolnshire Council, said:
"Access to reliable, fast internet will benefit North Lincolnshire learners in so many ways - pupils will be motivated to extend their learning beyond school by accessing resources from home which will, in turn, encourage independence and creativity.
"Parents and carers will also benefit by increased opportunities to 'get involved' in their children's learning."
Cllr Neil Poole, cabinet member for Policy and Resources at North Lincolnshire Council, said: “Like it or not, more and more of our day to day activities are moving online.
“It affects everything from your children finishing their homework on time to applying for a place at university. If we don’t have superfast broadband, we’ll be left behind.
“It’s vital that we have the best broadband infrastructure available to make sure people in North and North East Lincolnshire are not left behind.
“If you haven’t done so already, complete the quick survey and get behind the campaign.”
