Could you be going faster online? #CheckandOrder

More than 200 towns and villages across the Highlands and Islands can now access fibre optic broadband, thanks to the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband project.

You can check here what's available to you. If you can get it you need to order it from your Internet Service Provider. Fibre based broadband is entirely separate from current ‘ADSL’ services, so you won’t just be automatically upgraded.

Roll-out into 2017

In this phase of our ambitious plan we aim to deliver access to fibre based services to around 86% of premises in the Highlands and Islands. We are reaching further than the initial target as a result of successful take-up and efficiencies in BT delivery.

You can see the technology we are using to do this in our How do I get it? section.

The project is designed to bring better broadband to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible within the available budget. It has been modelled to reach as deep into the area as possble, and is bringing fibre optic cabling to areas where it has not been before.

We won't be able to reach everyone in this current contract.  However, given only 4% had access to fibre at the start of 2013, the current programme is a massive step in the right direction.

There are areas we won't reach at all.  In areas where there is some coverage, service and speed will depend on whether you are connected to the technology and your distance from it. 

Moving forward, the Scottish Government has committed to 100% superfast coverage by 2021. Digital Scotland partners are already looking at how this can be delivered.

Community Broadband Scotland
The Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband programme's aim is to bring next generation broadband to 95% of premises in Scotland by the end of 2017. To help those communities unlikely to be reached, the Scottish Government has created Community Broadband Scotland (CBS). CBS is working with areas which won't be reached by the fibre roll-out and who are developing a community owned broadband network.
