Superfast broadband plans set to continue

East Dunbartonshire is surfing the wave of superfast Internet coverage sweeping Scotland - and hopes are high that even more local communities will benefit soon.

More than 1,400 additional premises in and around Bishopbriggs and Bearsden recently gained access to ‘superfast broadband’, meaning they can use the Internet for business, pleasure and leisure at lightning speeds.

The latest phase of the £410 million Digital Scotland rollout is currently underway and aims to connect more than 4,100 homes and business in East Dunbartonshire to internet speeds of up to 80Mbps.

That will improve coverage for homes in Bishopbriggs and Bearsden.

People can find out the plans for their house or business through the Digital Scotland website
