Construction of a new transformational full fibre broadband network is underway in Fife across the two towns of Burntisland and Cardenden.
The network, provided by Scottish independent broadband provider GoFibre, will be able to connect more than 8,000 local residents and businesses to the power of full fibre.
Full fibre networks are considered to be the best type of connectivity, allowing communities to upload and download data with none of the disruption that ageing copper networks bring. However, it is only currently available to around 32% of Scottish premises, placing Burntisland and Cardenden at the forefront of a revolution.
GoFibre’s full fibre network will bring world-class digital connectivity to Burntisland and Cardenden, tackling the digital divide across Scotland. Once in place, speeds of up to 10Gbps will be available, transforming the ability for residents and businesses to work effectively, operate multiple devices simultaneously with no lag and download complete box sets in seconds.
Alex Cacciamani, GoFibre’s CEO, said: “We’re delighted to begin our work to connect Burntisland and Cardenden communities to the digital connectivity they need and deserve.
“It’s vitally important for our shared future that we eliminate the digital divide across Scotland. Doing so will enable us all to reach our full potential, facilitating business growth and innovation as well as benefiting local communities through seamless connectivity.
“We would like to thank everyone for their ongoing patience during the construction phase and we look forward to them enjoying the benefits of full fibre later this year.”
