The number of people adopting broadband services north of the border is continuing to increase, it has been claimed.

According to George White, spokesperson for the Internet Service Providers' Association (ISPA), Scotland's broadband market is becoming increasingly competitive.

He said that while take-up rates have traditionally lagged behind the rest of the UK, more people than ever are appreciating the benefits of advanced web services.

"Government does recognise the importance of giving people access to broadband as more public services go online," Mr White added.

"In a small minority of areas where the market may not deliver, ISPA would welcome government efforts to ensure that no one is digitally excluded."

Earlier this week, internet service provider 3 announced plans to invest £38.2 million in mobile broadband infrastructure in Scotland.

Kevin Green, the firm's Chief Executive, said around 700 new masts would be constructed around the country, enabling dongle users to get online.
