Digital broadband opportunities in Angus

Local Full Fibre Network (LFFN)

Local Full Fibre Network (LFFN) aims to help spread Gigabit (1000Mbps+) class connections to key public buildings and businesses, with the expectation that this leads to broadband providers (ISP) creating additional connections to local homes and businesses.

Through funding available from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, and the Tay Cities Deal, we are installing fibre connectivity to 50 of our buildings. As a result of this commitment, Openreach will be upgrading the infrastructure within the vicinity of these buildings for residents and businesses to obtain fibre connectivity.

This infrastructure work, known as Full Fibre Infrastructure Build (FFIB), takes fibre closer to local residents and businesses, meaning they can easily obtain fibre services. The information below indicates the type of connectivity that can be obtained:

  • Set speeds between 40Mbps and 1Gbps downstream and 10Mbps and 220Mbps upstream
  • Regulated price at bandwidths of 40/10
  • IEEE (Ethernet specification) compliant
  • Engineer installed or, if the equipment is pre-installed, no engineer visit required
  • Range of download speeds/upload speeds available:
    • Up to 40Mbps/10Mbps
    • Up to 55Mbps/10Mbps
    • Up to 80Mbps/20Mbps
    • Up to 330Mbps/50Mbps
    • Up to 500Mbps/165Mbps
    • Up to 1,000Mbps/220Mbps

Conditions of the grant funding require the project to be complete by 31 September 2021. As this infrastructure is rolled out, you will be able to check with your communications provider (for example, BT, EE, or Vodafone) if this service is available in your area. You should then compare the market to find the best possible price.
