Scotland superfast rollout expands
April 20, 2015
High-speed fibre broadband is being rolled out to a further 200 communities across Scotland over the summer, many in rural areas.
Up to 145,000 homes in Aberdeenshire, Angus, Ayrshire, Argyll and Bute, the Highlands and Shetland will have the chance to access faster connections.
The roll-out is part of the £410 million (€568m) Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband programme.
So far more than 3,400 km of fibre cable has been laid across the country.
Customers signing up to fibre broadband should be able to access download speeds of up to 80 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 20 Mbps.
