Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband in Kirriemuir

More than 600 homes and businesses in Kirriemuir are now able to connect to fast fibre broadband services thanks to the £428m Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband programme.

Super-fast broadband will help support Business Angus’ goal to market Angus as a great place for businesses to grow, innovate and work in an increasingly competitive marketplace. It will also open opportunities for businesses to locate to Angus and create new jobs.

This news, coupled with our exploration of radio broadband installations across the county to provide radio broadband to rural schools which will improve children’s access to digital learning, demonstrates the exciting opportunities broadband offers to the prosperity of communities for the future.

To access the latest fibre broadband technology, local people need to sign up with an internet service provider, as upgrades are not automatic. The Kirriemuir homes and businesses are among more than 10,000 across Angus now able to access fibre broadband through the £428m Digital Scotland programme.

Other local areas to benefit from the Digital Scotland rollout, led by the Scottish Government, include Auchterhouse, Kellas, Liff, Muirhead, Friockheim and parts of Forfar and Brechin. More local coverage will follow as engineers from Openreach, BT’s local network business, continue work on the ground.

Businesses can check the interactive map on the Digital Scotland website to find out if they can get the service and further information is also available on Twitter @ScotSuperfast or Facebook at
