Households and businesses in Montrose have gained access to high-speed broadband, after BT upgraded the local telephone network.

The internet service provider (ISP) has deployed next-generation broadband technology in the Scottish town, with 6,700 premises initially benefitting from the development.

Download speeds of up to 20Mb are now achievable by BT subscribers, more than double those previously available, the Scottish Courier reported.

BT Scotland Director Brendan Dick said the Montrose upgrade was part of the ISP's continuing investment in next-generation broadband for Scotland.

"It will help ensure that local businesses and households are in a strong position to thrive," he commented.

"Faster broadband can help businesses become more competitive and greatly improve the online services available to families, home workers and other internet users."

BT is currently investing up to £2.5 billion upgrading local telephone exchanges around the UK to support high-speed broadband.
