A fibre internet connection is now available in Aberdeenshire areas including Cornhill, Lumphanan, New Pitsligo and Strathdon.
Communities including Alford, Ellon, North Water Bridge and Forgue. Glenkindie and New Deer are also now connected to a full fibre network.
North-east MSP Gillian Martin said: “The difference that having fibre broadband can make to businesses or to improving the range of services available in the home is amazing.
“I’d urge everyone to take advantage of the faster speeds now available.”
