MS3 Networks has partnered with Lincolnshire Housing Partnership (LHP) to bring its fibre services to 450 residents living in low and medium-rise apartment blocks in Grimsby and Cleethorpes.

The expansion with LHP will take the total number of Lincolnshire homes and businesses that can access MS3’s full fibre broadband to over 60,000, including a completed Scunthorpe build covering 37,000 premises.

The partnership with LHP comes shortly after MS3 was granted permission to install its full fibre network in low and mid-rise homes owned by Hull City Council.

Jo Fleming, corporate partnerships manager at MS3, said: “Digital exclusion caused by a lack of fast and reliable broadband is a problem that particularly affects social housing residents.

“In north east Lincolnshire, around one in eight households live in socially rented housing, so our partnership with LHP allows us to improve socialisation, education and job opportunities for residents.”
