Fibre optic broadband launches in and around Glasgow

Monday, June 7th 2010 by Cable.co.uk

BT has announced it is close to completing its rollout of fibre optic broadband services in the Glasgow area.

Bundle provider BT has revealed it is completing work to bring fibre optic cable broadband to the Glasgow area.

The company, which offers broadband, home phone and digital TV services, has revealed that 19,000 homes and businesses will have access to super-fast internet services once the upgrades have been completed in the next few weeks.

Bridgeton and Giffnock are the latest exchange areas to benefit from the firm's £2.5 billion investment work, which will give consumers access to speeds of up to 40Mbps.

Brendan Dick, BT director for Scotland, said the introduction of the services was "an exciting development".

He added: "Households and businesses switching to super-fast broadband will soon be experiencing the internet as they have never experienced it before."

BT recently confirmed it is set to showcase the benefits of its fibre optic broadband services across Halifax.

The company is taking a demonstration bus to the area this week.
