Residents in Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders are being given access to superfast broadband after triumphing in BT's Race to Infinity.

Residents of the town and its local area will now be able to get online using the new fibre service.

Speaking to the BBC, BT's James McClafferty said that the region 'thoroughly deserved" its new superfast status.

"This investment opens up a host of great opportunities here in the town and surrounding villages," he said.

"It has the power to transform every aspect of people's lives - from education to entertainment - and helps make flexible working much more viable."

Innerleithen is one of the first Race to Infinity winners to be able to order the service.

Last week, it was reported that some residents across the UK who expected to receive fibre broadband services following the competition will be left disappointed.

Residents in West Hagbourne who helped with Blewbury in Oxfordshire's winning bid have been informed they live too far from the telephone exchange.
