GoFibre has made its fibre services available to around 4,500 premises across the Aberdeenshire towns of Portlethen and Newtonhill.

The altnet has expressed its commitment to continue building its network throughout Aberdeenshire, with plans to connect an additional 4,600 homes and businesses in Stonehaven. 

CEO Neil Conaghan said: “The completion of construction marks a significant step forward in our aim to close the digital divide across rural areas of Aberdeenshire.”

Aberdeenshire Council’s Digital Engagement Team added: “We don’t underestimate the difference this will make to local residents who have suffered with poor broadband in the past.”
