Forfar - Faster broadband as BT continues to deploy fibre to another 150,000 premises in Scotland

The Forfar Dispatch reports that some 7,000 premises, both homes and businesses, are among 150,400 Scottish premises in the latest phase of BT’s £2.5 billion roll-out of super-fast fibre broadband in the UK. The service should be available by spring 2013.
It will take the number of Scottish homes and businesses being passed by the new super-fast network to almost 836,000 – almost 24,000 of them in Angus.
The Drum quotes Brendan Dick, BT Scotland director:
This is a further major BT investment for Scotland. Our roll-out of fibre broadband is going from strength to strength.

In these tough economic times, this exciting technology will give a big boost to local businesses and households. Sophisticated communications are the lifeblood of any successful community.

Super-fast broadband can give our businesses a significant competitive edge, helping them save money and improve their services at the same time.

Fibre broadband also has the potential to change the face of public services and revolutionise entertainment at home. Local families will be able to experience entertainment, shopping and a myriad of services delivered the super-fast way.
