Kingswells councillor Steve Delaney said he has been given assurances from BT and council bosses

The community will be entirely connected by January 2018.

Cllr Delaney said this includes the 774 homes currently connected to the old TPON network in the Derbeth, Concraig and Wellside areas.

The connection in these areas will be made directly to the premises, allowing potential speeds of up to 300MB/s.

Cllr Delaney said: “I’m absolutely delighted to see the end is finally in sight.

“I met with BT’s regional director a few weeks ago to discuss the remaining properties which do not currently have access to high-speed broadband.

“The TPON network will remain connected for the meantime as there’s costs associated with the faster speeds and some people may be happy to remain on the old system.”

Fellow Kingswells councillor David Cameron said: “I’m very pleased that we seem to be making progress on this issue.”
