Stevenson Welcomes Further Superfast Broadband Rollout for Buckie & Rothiemay

Almost 7,000 homes and businesses in Moray and Banffshire are set to receive a high-speed broadband connection as part of the Digital Highlands and Islands project which is supported by the Scottish Government.

Led by the Highlands and Islands Enterprise, engineers will soon begin installations across Scotland. Locally, Rothiemay, Longmorn, Clochan, and Rothes will receive the technology for the first time. Additional improvements will be made to the existing networks in Buckie, Elgin, Forres, and Keith.

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast said:

“I am pleased to see the continued expansion of high-speed broadband to Banffshire & Buchan Coast and I’m grateful to the Scottish Government for their commitment to this project and the rural areas of my constituency.

“The increased connectivity will help local businesses to thrive and enable further growth as locations receive the technology for the first time. I look forward to seeing the changes as we continue on target for world class connectivity by 2020.”

BT Scotland Director Brendan Dick said:

“The civil engineering project underpinning this new network is not just one of the biggest in Scotland but is among the most complex anywhere in Europe.

“Openreach has been recruiting dozens of extra engineers to help shape Scotland’s future and many of our young apprentices are gaining valuable experience helping to connect up people to fibre in local communities across Scotland.”
