The Lothian Broadband Team win national Rural Impact Award!

The inaugural INCA Awards took place on Monday 5th November in London to celebrate the UK’s most innovative and inspirational alternative network providers (altnets) currently operating across the UK. Selected by a team of independent judges, Lothian Broadband won the Rural Impact award for the economic benefits a Superfast Broadband connection has given to East Lothian and Midlothian.

“We are delighted to have been awarded the Rural Impact Award by INCA. This is great recognition for our local team, based in Humbie, and something we could not have achieved without the significant support from the community and our Mast Site Hosts across the counties. We understand the issues associated with broadband in the country and we ensure our customers get broadband speeds that are comparable to those available in the city, but without the hassle associated with the bigger providers. Rural broadband is our area of expertise with the added bonus of great customer service!” Nic McCormick. Managing Director
