Businesses in Bo’ness claim they have been left hanging on the line by BT – after a promise by the telecom giants of super-fast broadband for the area.
Last week, BT announced more than 6200 local homes and firms would benefit from a £2.5billion roll-out of the service.
Local MSP Angus MacDonald hailed it as great news, adding: “It’s vital we embrace this latest generation of technology for our local economy.”
But local businessman Andrew McCleary told the Journal: “I certainly don’t have it. And when I contacted BT, I was told they couldn’t confirm there had been an upgrade.”
The owner of Carwash Express added: “I just want to know if and when I will get it.
“It would great from a business to business point of view and would also encourage more firms to set up here.”
A spokeswoman for BT said: “Unfortunately not every commercial business will get this at the moment. We expect to have more detail later in the year.”
