Broadband in Inverness

The UK’s most northerly city, Inverness has long been the home of much of Scotland’s industry, with the whiskey distilling business a cornerstone of the community. Today, the local economy is mainly technology based, with the Centre for Health Science into high-tech research and development.

Stable Scottish broadband

Despite being in the northern, windswept area of Scotland, Inverness boasts a surprisingly good broadband network. With the current influx of new technology jobs in the area, a strong infrastructure is vital to both properties and businesses.

BT plans to bring its superfast fibre-optic broadband to the area within the next few years, meaning that the network will eventually be improved even further. This will be propped up by funds from the Government’s Broadband UK budget.

Speed and Availability

Broadband speed in Inverness has been on the rise in recent years, with the average speed now reaching over 10Mb. The city centre is where you’ll find the most reliable connections, with the Kilmur and North Kessock some of the strongest areas.
