Construction begins on Fife full fibre network

Share this on social media:

Construction of a new transformational full fibre broadband network is underway in Fife, Scotland across the towns of Burntisland and Cardenden. 

The network is provided by Scottish independent broadband provider GoFibre, and it will be able to connect more than 8,000 residents and businesses.

Full fibre networks are currently available to around 32 per cent of Scottish premises, and the new network is part of the provider’s aim to help bridge the digital divide. Once in place across Burntisland and Cardenden, the network will allow the availability of speeds reaching up to 10Gb/s.

Alex Cacciamani, CEO at GoFibre commented: ‘It’s vitally important for our shared future that we eliminate the digital divide across Scotland. Doing so will enable us all to reach our full potential, facilitating business growth and innovation and benefiting local communities through seamless connectivity. We would like to thank everyone for their ongoing patience during the construction phase and we look forward to them enjoying the benefits of full fibre later this year.’
