A MASSIVE £95million investment is in the pipeline to deliver fast, reliable broadband to more homes and businesses in Renfrewshire.

The cash injection from Openreach will see Langbank join Renfrew, Paisley, Bishopton, Erskine, Bridge of Weir and other parts of Scotland as the local community receives a new full fibre broadband network.

With download speeds of 1 Gbps, full fibre broadband is up to 10 times faster than the average home broadband connection and is also less affected by peak time congestion.

Openreach has now upgraded more than six million homes and businesses across the UK with ultrafast full fibre, around 480,000 of them in Scotland.

The digital network provider's latest plans follow news earlier this year that around 300,000 Scottish homes and businesses would get access to Openreach’s new network, mostly in rural and harder to serve areas.

Katie Milligan, chair of the Openreach Board in Scotland, said: "As Scotland’s biggest fibre builder, we’re delighted to be unveiling another broadband boost right across the country. Good connectivity is vital – whether it’s to work from home, access education and care services, or for gaming and streaming entertainment – and that’s why we’re investing across the UK to upgrade our network to 25 million premises."
