Lossiemouth Urged to Embrace Openreach’s Ultrafast Broadband

Lossiemouth, UK – Over 2,100 homes and businesses in Lossiemouth now have access to ultrafast broadband. However, a mere 15 percent of those eligible to upgrade have made the transition to the new full fibre network.

Openreach, a key player in the UK’s broadband infrastructure, is encouraging residents and businesses in Lossiemouth and its surrounding areas to explore the benefits of gigabit-capable broadband. Recent data reveals that Openreach’s full fibre network, which serves providers like BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Vodafone, and Zen, is accessible to nearly 60 percent of local premises.

Openreach has invested more than £600,000 in bringing full fibre connectivity to Lossiemouth. Engineers have been diligently working on the network for the past two years, enabling ultrafast speeds of up to one gigabit per second (Gbps).

Across Moray, Openreach has already connected half of all properties to its full fibre network. This effort, amounting to a £7.2 million investment, has brought improved broadband to 22,300 homes and 1,700 businesses. One in three of these properties has already made the upgrade.

Full fibre broadband offers significant advantages, including enhanced reliability, resilience, and future-proof connectivity. Users can expect fewer faults, consistent speeds, and the ability to use multiple devices simultaneously.

Robert Thorburn, Openreach’s Partnership Director for Scotland, expressed the company’s commitment to enhancing connectivity in the region. While demand for improved broadband is robust across Moray, there is still significant untapped potential. This is particularly evident in Lossiemouth, where 85 percent of eligible residents and businesses have yet to benefit from the upgraded network.
