Connected Dundee

Superfast Fibre

Dundee is a city where broadband access is available to the majority of premises and where connectivity is prioritised so the city can be more competitive, reduce costs and improve quality of life, productivity and opportunities. It means more choice in how to connect to digital services.

Dundee is a world leader in superfast connectivity with more than 98.9% of premises covered.

Dundee City residents have access to the fastest average download speed (28.7Mbps) in Scotland and the fifth fastest in the UK according to the Which organisations research.

Virgin Media are currently providing 92.6% access to ultrafast 100+ Mbps to Dundee. Virgin are investing in Project Lightning the single biggest private investment in the UK and Ireland’s digital infrastructure in more than a decade.

Extensive work is underway with private investors delivering fibre to the premise projects.

Fibre to premise brings connectivity beyond the telecoms boxes located on every street and directly into premises so boosting connectivity and speed.
