Digital Scotland and Openreach bring FTTP services to more Highland communities

Wednesday 22 August 2018 | 10:40 CET | News
Around 140 remote Scottish households will soon see their broadband speeds improve from around 0.5 Mbps to 1 Gbps following a new infrastructure project mainly funded by the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband roll-out programme. The new network has recently gone live in Achnasheen and will gradually reach several Highland villages and hamlets, partly with the help of local residents, who will be digging in the last few metres of cable to more than 35 per cent of the properties.
