The small Borders town of Innerleithen is soon to be equipped with Scotland's fastest broadband services, it has been reported.

Super-fast fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband is to be rolled out in the area, after Innerleithen won BT's Race to Infinity Competition earlier this year.

According to BT, the launch of FTTP broadband will enable residents and businesses to "streak ahead of other Scottish communities".

The firm said Innerleithen will be "at the forefront of Digital Britain", reports the BBC.

BT Scotland's Partnerships Director James McClafferty said: "This is fantastic news for the people of Innerleithen and the campaigners who have fought hard to win faster broadband for the town.

"With a mix of fibre to the cabinet and fibre to the premises technologies, Innerleithen will become the best connected place in Scotland."

He explained that BT is investing thousands of man hours in the upgrade, which will see 112 kilometres of fibre deployed across the town.
