Lightspeed aims to bring its fibre optic directly to 100,000 homes and businesses across the East of England by 2022, with ambitions to expand and reach 1 million homes by 2025.
Specialist fibre infrastructure build partners, RCU Solutions have been appointed to work in partnership with Lightspeed. Founded in 2008 and operating across the UK, RCU Solutions has a specialist telecoms division which delivers effective planning, build and maintenance of the telecom’s infrastructure to the highest possible standards.
Stephen Joynes, Director, RCU Solutions, added: “We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Lightspeed to deliver a much needed and exciting new service to the people of South Lincolnshire. Over the last 14 months the demand on broadband/internet services has grown to never experienced levels, and going forward this is set to stay at heights not previously experienced. All too often, investment has focused on the large urban areas, but we are proud to break from the norm and deliver a service that the people of South Lincolnshire deserve.”

Local residents and businesses will benefit from the ultra-fast gigabit upload and download speeds enabling professional home working, streaming high quality online entertainment for multi-users, high speed gaming, home schooling, multi-video and face-to-face call services, with no buffering. Local residents will be advised of plans to start work in their street and it is expected that the first homes and businesses will be able to connect later this year.
Lightspeed will be offering a portfolio of services to consumers and businesses to cover all their Internet and Wi-Fi needs. For further information see www.lightspeed.co.uk
