The​ ​rural broadband service​ is connecting hard-to-reach customers to reliable and fast broadband. Quickline Communications, a leading Internet Service Provider specialising in rural connectivity, are building upon their existing rural networks to test how TV Whitespace and 60GHz technologies can deliver a 30Mbs broadband service to rural homes and businesses with poor or no connection.

On the testbed, there are currently premises connected by Quickline and Broadway Partners in rural areas of Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Perthshire, Inverness-shire, and Arran, with more to be connected in Cumbria and Lincolnshire during summer 2019.
