Many thanks for taking the trouble to look at AB Internet's coverage and consider us as a service provider. You have probably heard about the great news regarding what we are doing in conjunction with Lincolnshire County Council, if not, you can see it here.
Whilst I am not sure how this affects you directly, (you may be in different areas of the county) you can rest assured that if you're not 'on net' right now, our plans for Lincolnshire as a whole will see your needs addressed very very soon.
Regarding your specific questions, 12km or so is eminently 'do-able' with our technology and our 10Mb Essential Broadband Service has been successfully deployed all over the UK at those sort of ranges. Obviously this has line of sight considerations, but with a dense network of PoPs that we are building, if you cant see one, you'll see the other.
We are very proud of the fact that our customers are in some of the most remote parts of the UK and yet they get speeds (and ping times) even faster than some cities in the UK! Take a look here, this customer is about 9km from our nearest PoP
All I would say to anybody considering signing up for any contract now with a service provider in Lincolnshire (out of sheer frustration) just hold fire a little longer. LCC is doing some really wonderful stuff with AB Internet and British Telecom and real choice, speed and value is being built right now and is literally just round the corner for you.
Now for a shameless plug, if you haven't already, give us a call on 01522 821111 and get your name down (if you haven't done so already) being the first surfer on a new wave, often has benefits ;-)
