BT has rolled out a super fast fibre-based broadband service in Dalgety Bay, Fife.
The company said that the move will allow around 4,000 businesses and households in Dalgety Bay to access download speeds of up to 40 Mbps, and upload speeds of 10 Mbps via its fibre-to-cabinet broadband network.
BT expects that download speeds will be enhanced to 60 Mbps in the future if houses and offices can be directly connected to the fibre optics, potentially offering better access to high-end applications and entertainment services.
The company has also said that, at first, some of the users may not be able to get the most out of the service owing to some technical faults. BT partner OpenReach, the organisation responsible for the deployment of the service, is said to be coming up with a solution to fix this.
BT Scotland head, Brendan Dick, said in a statement: “As our roll-out of super-fast, fibre-based broadband continues, many more people in other parts of the country, including around 20,000 in Dunfermline, can look forward to faster speeds in the pipeline.”
