ITS’ new six-mile full fibre network in Scunthorpe has gone live providing hundreds of local businesses with high-speed connectivity.
The investment comes following conversations with North Lincolnshire Council who have plans to invest in the area over the next five years thanks to £27m from the Government’s Town Deal that will grow the economy and create jobs.
It is hoped high speed connectivity will draw new businesses to the area whilst helping local companies embark on their digital transformation journeys.
Phillip Lee, Head of Wholesale at ITS said: “Scunthorpe is another area of the UK that has been overlooked. North Lincolnshire Council’s appetite to update Scunthorpe’s connectivity has been clear from the outset and they have been very supportive, collaborating at each stage of the build process from start to finish.”
