Digital infrastructure

Just as our road and rail networks enable people and goods to move easily and freely across North Lincolnshire, our Digital Infrastructure is just as important to enable development and support our area’s growth. By working with service-providers and supporting the development of our digital networks, we will be enabling infrastructure that drives economic growth and productivity, and ensuring North Lincolnshire remains a place to live, work, visit and invest.


The Northern Lincolnshire Broadband project was established by North Lincolnshire Council to deliver the Government’s Broadband Strategy and is a partnership between North and North East Lincolnshire Council.


5G is the fifth generation of mobile networks, following on from previous mobile generations 2G, 3G and 4G. Compared to most of today’s networks (which primarily use 4G and 3G technology), 5G is set to be far faster and more reliable, with greater capacity and lower response times.

We want to work with networks to bring 5G coverage to our area, thinking of innovative solutions to remove the barriers to 5G development in North Lincolnshire.
