Local Councillor Welcomes Superfast Broadband to Kirkton of Skene

>> 15 April 2014

Westhill & District SNP councillor David Aitchison has welcomed the launch of superfast broadband in the village of Kirkton of Skene today.

Cllr Aitchison attended today’s launch ceremony which means residents in the village are now able to connect to high-speed fibre broadband thanks to the roll-out of the £410 million Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband programme.

Commenting, Cllr David Aitchison said:

“Today’s launch of a major fibre broadband upgrade locally is very welcome news indeed. It is critical to our local economy that we see investment in new communications technology to enable business to remain competitive with major urban centres and to attract new investment in businesses which are viewed as so important to the area’s economic future.

“The Scottish Government is committed to ensuring that a world class digital infrastructure is in place across Scotland by 2017/18 and that a significant increase in coverage has been achieved by 2015. This investment will ensure that this ambition is achieved.”
