The Company

Heriot Community Broadband 
A Community Interest Company (CIC)

Heriot Community Broadband CIC (HCBCIC) was set up in 2013 as a community owned non profit making company to provide a high speed broadband network for everyone in the Heriot area and it's immediate environs. It is being financed by grants from local windfarms and a local estate, plus subscriptions to the service.

Working in conjuction with Edinburgh University and
HUBS a wireless network link has been established using masts and radio antenna. These have been set up in line of sight from Easter Bush on the outskirts of Edinburgh.  In the initial stages masts were erected at Nettlingflat and on Clints Hill. Following the success of the initial Pilot scheme relay links were put in place at Heriot House and Gilston. Further masts have been erected at Corsehope, Blackhope, Dewar, Raeshaw, Hanginshaw, Haltree and Cowbraehill, enabling a vast majority of Heriot and its immediate environs to get connected, even the most remotest of properties. Funding is continuously being sought to further develop the network to beyond Heriot. Additionally private estates have contributed to the building of new masts such as one on Windlestraw which connects remote properties down the Heriot to Innerleithen road.  If you are interested in getting connected with Heriot Community Broadband then please contact us.

There are five directors four of whom are local residents and voluntarily give their time and expertise to develop the broadband network. There is also an administrator/secretary who is funded by a local commercial organisation. Outside contractors are brought in for their expertise when erecting the masts and installing the broadband service to properties. Whenever possible we endeavour to employ local people and companies to carry out these works.
