An Inverness-headquartered internet service provider is doubling its network coverage in a bid to reach 500,000 properties.

BrawBand is looking to provide gigabit broadband to Aberdeen, Dundee and Stirling, in addition to Inverness and Renfrewshire.

David Munro, director of product at BrawBand operator Focus Group, said: “We firmly believe that everyone in Scotland deserves access to high-speed internet. Being able to expand our network across a huge portion of the country is an exciting step towards making that dream a reality.

“Scotland has the least access to full-fibre broadband in the UK – with 48 per cent of homes able to access it, compared to 92 per cent in Northern Ireland. We’re delighted to be bringing BrawBand to even more homes than ever before, ensuring more people in Scotland have access to high quality internet for browsing, streaming, gaming and working from home.

“And as availability grows across the country, we plan to grow too.”

The firm’s expanded coverage comes as part of the CityFibre network, allowing the firm access to a greater geographical area.

Paul Wakefield, senior partnership manager for Scotland at CityFibre, said: “We’re extremely proud of our rollout in Scotland as full fibre has the potential to truly transform the digital capabilities of Scotland.”
