Lincolnshire county council has highlighted the severe lack of adequate connections around the area by publishing a broadband 'not-spot' map.As local businesses continue to petition for the introduction of high speed connections, officials decided to create a broadband map of their local territory, detailing where super speed connections were located.
The image posted at skegnessstandard.co.uk showed a high quantity of yellow shades - representing a speed of 2mbps or lower - in areas like Skegness and Boston.
This indicated that businesses around the county are being undeserved and possibly put off an investment in technology high performance cloud computing, which requires a constant connection.
The map formed part of a campaign from the county council, which has so far gained support from 720 people in the Skegness area alone. In addition to the support from local residents, 115 businesses have also backed the campaign.
This group includes Lee Roberts, an assistant manager at the X-Site Skate Park, who called for connectivity to be improved.
"The broadband here is generally a bit sluggish and we do have a lot of times when it will just stop and reset itself. The other day we just wanted to check emails and it just wouldn't let us get on, which is very frustrating," he stated.
"As well as being more reliable, it could do with just being faster. We'll get behind the campaign for the greater good of the area - we're not the only business here and everyone needs a good service."
According to stamfordmercury.co.uk, 1,015 businesses countywide have signed up to the campaign.
