Where are the fastest and slowest broadband speeds in North East Lincolnshire?
THE speed of broadband connections in parts of North East Lincolnshire is an issue which continues to be a source of much frustration for many residents and businesses in the area.
Much of the concern stems from the huge differences in speed reported by internet users in the region with some feeling they are being left out whilst others enjoy much faster connections.
An Ofcom report released in 2011 stated that North East Lincolnshire had, on average, the 11th fastest connection speeds in the UK out of the 200 regions surveyed.
However, a poll conducted on this website recently found that only 43 per cent of internet users in the area are happy with the speed of their connections.

Campaigners have argued that, though very high speeds can be achieved in parts of urbanised areas such as Grimsby and Immingham, other communities still have to settle for connections which fall below the Government’s 2 Mb/s minimum target.
