Roaring into Dragonby as North Lincolnshire hamlet joins full fibre network

A tiny North Lincolnshire community previously ignored by major internet service providers can now access our full fibre broadband.

The broadband experience has been transformed for residents in the ancient hamlet of Dragonby, which has fewer than 60 homes. With full fibre speeds of up to 1 Gbps now available, residents can stream, shop and socialise online without buffering or losing connection.
Dragonby, which is three miles north of Scunthorpe, is the first rural community to be connected by our newly-established in-house Build Team. Our CEO Sean Royce said: “Having a fast, reliable broadband service is essential for staying in touch with family and friends, home entertainment, online shopping and so much more.

“Our full fibre broadband unlocks game-changing speeds and provides a rock-solid connection, no matter what your needs are or where you live.“We’re thrilled residents in Dragonby can now join our full fibre network and it’s all thanks to our new in-house Build Team and hope the people of Dragonby enjoy their enhanced digital life.”

We’re delivering fast, reliable broadband to rural communities across North Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire, North Yorkshire and West Yorkshire. Driven by a belief that people should not be penalised for where they choose to live, and a mission to tackle the digital divide between rural and urban areas, we champion communities such as Dragonby. Andrew Percy, MP for the Brigg and Goole constituency which covers Dragonby, visited the hamlet to meet members of our team. He said: “It’s clear that some of the big providers have no interest in communities such as Dragonby.

“I’m grateful for the investment from Quickline, which gives people access to what is now an essential service.” Dragonby has become the latest rural community in North Lincolnshire to join our full fibre network. Nearby villages, including Burton upon Stather and Flixborough, have had their broadband experiences transformed by us, unlocking speeds previously impossible in these communities. Lee Jackson, our Build Team Manager, said: “Having an in-house Build Team iscrucial to ensure we have the resources and the capability to meet our ambitious full fibre rollout targets.

“Our highly qualified and experienced Build Team means we can accelerate our rollout of full fibre in rural communities, without being reliant on others which sets us apart from many internet providers.”
