When Can I Get Fibre Broadband?

The village was busy with construction in December.  The fibre cabinet was installed in Dog Street and work was underway building trenches to carry the fibre optic cable.  You can’t order superfast broadband yet but it shouldn’t be too much longer. Scourie has already been activated and customers who have signed up have been given a start date in February.

Once fibre service is ready in Kinlochbervie, you can check out what speeds you might expect at your address at https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html.  Until the service is ready, this site only shows the current speeds.

Kinlochbervie residents can expect improved speeds within 2.5 km of the exchange.  If you live beyond 2.5 km, satellite is really the only current method available of increasing internet speeds.  The Better Broadband Voucher Scheme provides a grant of £350 towards satellite installation.

Community Broadband Scotland has provided a helpful update on the current broadband situation in Kinlochbervie.
