Thousands more will benefit from fast broadband
BT has announced it will give 2,800 more homes and businesses in Lincolnshire access to high-speed fibre broadband.
Work will take place in Lincoln, including the Birchwood area, plus Washingborough, Louth, Boston, Grantham and Stamford.
The extra investment is being made in communities already included in the company's £2.5 billion commercial roll-out of fibre broadband.
Openreach, BT's local network business, will carry out the project between now and the end of Spring 2014, subject to planning and technical constraints

BT expects this to be the final announcement expanding the coverage of its commercial programme.
Future announcements will focus on areas where fibre coverage is to be expanded even further via partnerships with the public sector and local communities.
Owen Moody, BT East Midlands regional director, said: "With today's further fibre broadband investment in the region we hope even more local people will soon experience the difference for themselves – by joining more than 1.7 million UK homes and businesses already using the technology."
BT's "fibre footprint" currently passes more than 16 million UK homes and businesses. It's due to pass two-thirds of UK premises – around 19 million premises – by the end of Spring 2014, at least 18 months ahead of the original timetable.
