The latest Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) contract has been announced with BT chosen to lead a £48m scheme in Lincolnshire.
The deal will bring superfast services to 88 percent of the region, while the rest of the region should get a minimum 2Mbit/s, which should mean all residents and businesses in the region can get broadband services for the first time.
BT said this would equate to around 150,000 premises that would be otherwise left without broadband if rollouts were purely funded on a commercial basis.
In total, the project will see £11.2m put forward from the local county council, £4m from district authorities, £14.3m from BDUK and £18.8m from BT.
"It's fantastic that for the first time, broadband will be available everywhere in Lincolnshire as the result of one of our largest superfast broadband projects in the country," said internet minister Ed Vaizey.
"The UK already does more business online than any other European country, and widespread access to super-fast broadband will provide a tremendous boost to Lincolnshire's local economy."
Local councillor Kelly Smith welcomed the signing of the deal as a vital step in boosting the counties economic prospects.
"This project is going to dramatically improve broadband speeds across the county, bringing a wealth of opportunities for residents and businesses alike. This is the start of an exciting new era for our county."
The announcement from BT caps a busy few days for the firm after it announced plans to increase its Cornish broadband rollout and revealed a £4m broadband scheme in the Isles of Scilly using a previously dormant undersea cable.
