Fibre optic broadband comes to Girvan
The South Ayrshire town of Girvan has been introduced to fibre optic broadband access thanks to a rollout project by BT.

More than 1,600 homes and businesses are now connected to superfast broadband speeds after the installation of the next-generation infrastructure. This figure is expected to grow to more than 3,200 once the service provider's engineers have completed work on the upgrade.

Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock MP Sandra Osborne was delighted by the news, hailing the project as being being hugely beneficial for both local residents and business owners.

She said: "Broadband is an essential part of South Ayrshire's present and future. It's vital that we embrace this latest generation of technology in order for our local economy to remain competitive."

Girvan follows in the footsteps of nearby Alloway, Ayr and Troon, which have already been connected to a fibre optic service.

The upgrades are part of a nationwide project by BT that has seen it invest £2.5 billion in increasing superfast coverage all over the UK.
