For the first time in the history of telecoms, residents of and the surrounding villages will have a choice of superfast broadband provider. Local company, Communications have built a mast at the Imerys quarry site to directly compete with other Internet Service Providers (ISPs) such as and BT.

The installation of a new wireless internet mast, beside the pasture of Westwood offers residents and businesses within a 10 mile radius, an alternative to traditional telecoms with connection speeds of up to 50Mbps.

The Superfast project is a commercial extension into East Yorkshire, streaming from the £2.5m Northern Lincolnshire project, where deployed state-of-the-art equipment as part of a Government pilot to test superfast wireless broadband, in one of the hardest to reach areas of the UK.

Now their infrastructure feeds across the banks of the Humber, via Riplingham and to provide connection speeds of up to 50Mbps, via over the air .

The company is investing a further £1.8m over the next 12 months to expand its superfast network in the Humber Region.

The company has been in operation since 2007, using that works via a small non-invasive device which is securely attached to the roof of a property, which then receives a signal from the nearest mast location.

, managing director of says:

“Although our service has been available in urban areas, until now, we had focussed on hard to reach rural areas. The Superfast project has been months in the planning, we have been scouting a location to give us the height required to reach out across the whole town.”

“We are delighted that Imerys agreed to this location as it gives us a massive 10 mile radius from the mast, making this the first time that superfast broadband is available across the town and surrounding villages using wireless . Both residents and businesses now have access to a true alternative.”

“Unlike traditional telecoms, our works without a telephone landline, these are in rapid decline as most use mobile phones to communicate. does offer voice over the internet service (VOIP) which enables to make international calls at no extra cost and this option has been very popular with our customers who want to keep in touch with friends and relatives, particularly overseas.”

“This is a very exciting time for us and our business is continuing to grow at a phenomenal rate, due to the technology we use, excellent customer service and having the right team on-board.”

  1. Relax Broadband use Kcom, therefore they are not a true independent service provider and I’m sure they don’t offer speeds of up to 50Mbps.
