Underbank Pupils Get a Lesson With Fibre Broadband

Monday, 07 November 2016

Pupils from Underbank Primary School in Crossford were superfast in finding out the benefits of fibre broadband when the Digital Scotland Fibre Showcase paid them a visit last week.

Over 21,000 households and businesses in South Lanarkshire can now access high-speed fibre services thanks to the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband programme.

During the visit, pupils were able to climb aboard the Digital Scotland Fibre Showcase, a unique vehicle which features equipment used in the roll-out of fibre broadband.

Local people need to sign up for the new services with an internet service provider, as upgrades are not automatic.

Local people can check the interactive map on the Digital Scotland website ( to find out if they can get the service and further information is also available on Twitter @ScotSuperfast or Facebook at
