The MP for Gainsborough has welcomed news that more homes and business in his constituency now have access to superfast broadband internet.

Sir Edward Leigh, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Gainsborough, said: “We’ve had £16.6 million allocated for the superfast broadband rollout here in Lincolnshire so far and more than 3.5 million homes and businesses across the country now have coverage.

“Between September and December of last year 1,690 premises in the Gainsborough constituency received superfast broadband coverage, which makes more than 18,000 premises in total here, and a further 1,790 to be covered by Junenext year.

“There’s still work to be done and I am fighting for many of our small villages and communities to have better, faster internet.

“We still don’t have it in Stainton le Vale, so I sympathise very strongly with others who are still waiting.”
