Rural Broadband delivered by the Community Hibernation The Story So Far.....

Striving for Superfast Broadband for the Borders

Starting as the "Ettrick and Beyond" Community Superfast Broadband project, we are now "Borders Broadband". We are aiming to bring superfast broadband to the 2500+ premises in our part of the South of Scotland that are not served by an existing commercial suppliers.

SuperFast Broadband to the most rural of properties ?

Although a final solution has yet to be designed, we expect it will comprise a combination of technologies (fibre optic cable, microwave and radio). It is too early to say what technological route we will be taking until we've started detailed discussions with telecom suppliers, around mid-2017.

How long before I get Superfast Broadband ?
