SUPERFAST broadband has come to Buckie – the first location in Scotland enabled as part of a £410 million publicly-funded project.

The first cabinet bringing next generation services to rural parts of the country is now live in the Moray community.

Around 400 premises can now order fibre services and that figure will increase to more than 5,300 as BT engineers complete the local upgrade in the weeks ahead.

Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon described it as an important milestone in one of the most ambitious broadband infrastructure projects ever to have been undertaken, with 95% of premises in Scotland due to be covered by 2017/18.
