We have an update to our Q & A entry about why our broadband is so rubbish. Digital Scotland's latest interactive map says of the Killearn area “Work under the Digital Scotland programme means that the first premises in this area are currently expected to receive fibre broadband in the period July to December 2015.” This appears to be an advancement on the 2016 date although there is no indication of which premises will be first or when fibre broadband will be available to all premises.
