Broadband boost for Gardenstown residents
Businesses and residents in Gardenstown near Banff in Aberdeenshire are being offered the chance to connect to improved fibre broadband infrastructure.

More than 280 properties in the area are being connected to new superfast networks following the installation of a new fibre cabinet in the village as part of the ongoing Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband scheme, the Banffshire Journal reports.

Work in the area is being carried out by BT's Openreach division, with the new fibre connections capable of providing download speeds of up to 80 Mbps to customers.

Sara Budge, Programme Director for Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband, said: "The difference that fibre broadband can make is amazing, giving much more flexibility whether it's at work or in the home. Residents should contact their service provider to get connected."

She added that further local coverage will be rolled out in the coming months to further bolster broadband access for the village and surrounding communities.
