Broadband rollout for Scotland continues
The installation of new superfast broadband infrastructure is continuing to take place across Scotland, with fibre optic cabinets coming online in the Govan area of Glasgow and the East Dunbartonshire town of Bearsden in recent days.

Download speeds of up 80 Mbps are now being offered to each of these communities, with the ongoing delivery of superfast infrastructure having delivered benefits to more than 275,000 premises across Scotland in the last year.

Sara Budge, programme director for Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband, said: "The project is developing a high speed fibre network which is changing the face of broadband."

She added that the £410 million scheme is helping to provide a considerable boost to broadband access for those communities not covered under other commercial rollouts, ensuring the benefits of superfast connectivity can be enjoyed by homes and businesses across the nation.
