Parts of North Lincolnshire are benefiting now from superfast broadband with speeds of more than 24Mb/s.

The community roadshow is visiting areas that are planned to receive fibre high-speed broadband by June 2015 in Northern Lincolnshire. The NLBB team will provide information about the upgrade and tell people what it means for them.

The Isle roadshow dates are May 20 from 10am to noon in Haxey playing field car park, and from 1pm to 2.30pm on the same day in Ashtree Close car park at Belton.

Residents are advised to watch for other roadshow dates in July and August.

Information and advice from other council services is given at the roadshows, including the Affordable Warmth team, Adult Community Learning and the regeneration team.

Internet virgins who want to take advantage of high-speed broadband can join free internet training sessions provided by the council and North Lincolnshire Homes.

These sessions will help people to get online and benefit from the many services and advantages it provides.
