Leading broadband provider BT is close to offering people in Livingston access to super-fast internet services.

The company has confirmed that upgrade work taking place at the Livingston Station exchange will ensure that 6,500 households and businesses have fibre-optic broadband access.

According to BT, the upgrades mean that those affected are the first in Scotland outside of Edinburgh and Glasgow to feel the full benefits of its investment in network upgrades.

BT's Director for Scotland Brendan Dick said the introduction of the services will support both jobs and the local economy.

He added: "This is an exciting development for West Lothian. Households and businesses switching to super-fast broadband will soon be experiencing the internet as they have never experienced it before."

BT recently revealed it is deploying solutions from ECI Telecom as part of its broadband infrastructure improvements.

The company is using the Hi-Focus multi-service access node and the 1Net framework.
