TalkTalk aims to continue expanding its fibre broadband network in Scotland, it has been reported.

Paul Lawton, Managing Director of the broadband provider, said the firm was looking to increase its industry foothold north of the border.

He claimed that TalkTalk was looking to speed up the deployment of high-speed broadband across Scotland in order to meet the government's digital ambitions.

As reported by the Drum, the broadband provider is intending to deliver an additional 700 super-fast exchanges throughout the UK over the next two years.

Mr Lawton said this will offer "a major shot in the arm" for businesses in Scotland and the rest of the UK, who will be able to benefit from faster uploads and downloads.

"A fast and efficient broadband service remains pivotal to helping companies stay competitive," he told the news provider.

According to a recent Ofcom report, the broadband adoption rate is just 61 per cent in Scotland, compared to 74 per cent for the whole of the UK.
