The government's investment in super-fast broadband is making the UK a more attractive place to do business, it has been claimed.

Ed Vaizey, Minister for Digital Economy, suggested the ongoing Broadband Delivery UK rollout can attract investment to Britain.

"Investing in super-fast broadband is a key part of the UK government’s plan to bring world-class connectivity to our homes and businesses," he stated.

"We recognise that the growing demands of the digital age will have a significant impact on the UK's competitiveness."

Mr Vaizey claimed that "great progress" is being made on the rollout of fibre broadband in rural parts of Britain.

He was speaking after the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband partnership announced that more than 170,000 homes and businesses in rural parts of the country now have access to fibre services.

The £410 million programme has seen super-fast broadband go live in parts of Aberdeenshire, Fife, East Ayrshire, South Ayrshire and Dumfries & Galloway in recent weeks.
