BT criticized for neglecting Scotland
John Lamont, the Member of Parliament from Scotland has criticized BT for ignoring the Borders region for broadband up-gradation plan.
BT had given the list of 98 telephone exchanges which will be fibre-enabled by next year.
None of the 21 exchanges in Scotland is included in the list. The MP is too upset and angry about it. He informed that there are many towns in the region which very badly want high speed internet.
High speed reliable connection is a basic necessity currently. It is necessary for the businesses as well as households.
It is a pity that the businesses in the Borders region will lag behind other places in the country which have been provided with fiber optic broadband.
But BT has another story to tell. A BT spokeswoman informed that it is not correct to say that the Border region has been neglected. During the past the region was well taken care of even when other parts of the UK were not in the picture.
Incidentally, super fast broadband has been already confirmed for provided in Peebles, Galashiels, and the work will be taken up shortly. Arrangements also have been made for improving the speed Kelso, Selkirk, Eyemouth, Hawick etc.
The spokeswoman also added that Innerleithen has the privilege of becoming first town in Scotland to get ultra fast broadband service. She will meet the MP and sort out his concerns.
