Highlands and Islands Enterprise to help upgrade 6 BT exchanges
BBC News Online reports from the Convention of the Highlands and Islands in Elgin that six BT exchanges are to be upgraded to support broadband. The six exchanges are Forres, Nairn, Dingwall, Buckie, Oban and Fort William. The upgrades will upgraded by BT Scotland with support from the Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
Six exchanges is a start, lets hope that further initiatives can be made around the country to ensure that something approaching universal affordable and usable broadband can be achieved within a realistic timescale.
