Loch End, Abriachan, Balchraggen, Dores, Achmony, Milton, Drumnadrochit, Kilmore, Strone, Bunloit, Inverfarigaig and Foyers are the first areas to receive service.
We have had such good feedback from the first BETA customers that we are working on plans to extend coverage further down the Loch. Let us know if you are interested in receiving service outside of the immediate coverage area – the more people register their interest, the quicker we will come!

Who is behind Broadway Broadband?
A mix of local people and industry players. Locally, the team has had terrific assistance from local Community Groups and individuals.
From outside, the technology is being delivered with the help of Microsoft, Nominet, the registry for .uk domain names, together with TVWS and other equipment providers. The network is being designed, built and operated and the service delivered by Broadway Partners.
The project team has come together in response to a clearly pressing need for better broadband within the community, and welcomes input, assistance and suggestions from individuals and businesses in the area.
Why is Broadway Broadband going to be significantly better than what we have now?
The fact is that some parts of the world are just too difficult for the local telephone company to get to, when it comes to pushing high-speed data down long, and usually very old copper telephone lines – Loch Ness is one of those places. While Drum' and Dores are already enjoying some of the benefits of BT’s superfast upgrade programme, it is fairly obvious that large parts of the area , as well as individual ‘not spots’ scattered throughout, have little chance of seeing real improvement any time soon from BT’s – despite BT’s best efforts.
Our approach is to apply some fresh thinking, and new technology, to the problem. Using a mixture of wireless technologies, Broadway Broadband will deliver brilliant speed and performance. More than enough to stream HDTV – Netflix, iPlayer or whatever – or to have the children and grandchildren to stay with all their tablets and smartphones, or to run your business.
