Latest phase revealed for Scottish broadband rollout
Details of the next phase of the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband programme have been published by BT Scotland, with several areas of the Highlands and Islands to benefit in this latest broadband drive.

New fibre connections have been earmarked for the communities of Ardgay, Brora, Edderton, Helmsdale, Lairg and Rogart in the coming months, with superfast broadband download rates of up to 80 Mbps expected to be delivered for residents to enjoy.

Director of BT Scotland Brendan Dick commented that the scale of the £410 million Digital Scotland scheme means that people in these areas need to understand that the timeline for delivery at present is "not set in stone".

As such, he added: "The website at www.digitalscotland.org/whereandwhen is updated frequently and is an excellent source of information, as people can check the latest details based on their own postcodes."

To date, more than 275,000 homes and businesses have been connected to new superfast connections through the efforts of Digital Scotland, with thousands more expected to benefit from the project in the coming years.
