Broadband welcomed

Maureen Watt, MSP for Aberdeen South and North Kincardine, has welcomed the news that superfast broadband is now accessible in Portlethen.

Ms Watt has been in continued contact with BT on this matter since raising it with them a number of months ago. She said: “I am delighted that many homes and businesses across Portlethen will now be able to reap the benefits of faster broadband.

“The issue of superfast broadband for the town was a matter I raised with BT a number of months ago so, naturally, I am extremely pleased to see that progress has begun.

“However, while it’s my understanding that two cabinets are already up and running, with a further three to be connected in the near future, not all of the town will be served. I would encourage BT to ensure that the entire population has access to this as soon as possible.”
