FULL Fibre Broadband Coming To Port Glasgow

28 May, 2024 | Local

PORT Glasgow is among the next places in Scotland to get full fibre broadband.

The Inverclyde town will receive the upgrade through the Openreach programme.

Robert Thorburn, Openreach partnership director for Scotland, said: “Our rollout of full fibre broadband is a huge infrastructure success story. As far as we know, no company is building faster or further in Europe.

“Our engineers are working at a rapid pace, despite the huge complexities of an engineering project on this scale, and we won’t be stopping any time soon.

“Our fibre network now passes more than 365,000 properties across the Glasgow City Region, and today we’re pledging further investment for more local communities.”

Scottish Government employment and investment minister Tom Arthur said: “Digital infrastructure is a key enabler to support economic growth right across Scotland. It’s why the Scottish Government is making record investment in broadband infrastructure this year, and we will continue to work alongside Openreach and other partners to continue improving and extending our digital network to benefit communities and businesses across the country.

“As a signatory of Scotland’s Full Fibre Charter, Openreach is committed to accelerating and prioritising rollout of the technology. This welcome programme of work will bring continued significant investment in our workforce and national infrastructure, enabling more homes and businesses -– including in our island and rural communities — to access a full fibre connection.”
