Homes and businesses in two parts of Edinburgh now have access to fibre-optic broadband services, thanks to BT's recent investment in the technology.

The company has revealed that super-fast internet is available to people served by the Corstophine and Craiglockhart exchanges, as part of its latest £2.5 billion investment plans.

Initially, web users will be able to access speeds of up to 40Mb, although the connection speeds could rise to 60Mb within a few months.

BT's Scotland Director Brendan Dick described the introduction of super-fast internet as "an exciting development in Edinburgh's fast-moving broadband story".

He added: "As our roll-out of super-fast, fibre-based broadband gathers pace, many more people in other parts of the country can look forward to faster speeds in the pipeline."

BT recently confirmed that super-fast broadband is now available in the Downend area of Bristol.

The technology is also set to be available in the Bristol North and Bristol West exchanges later this year.
