About Us

Established in 2013 as a community owned non profit making company. We aim to provide a Superfast Broadband Network to everyone within the Heriot area of the Scottish Borders and it's immediate environs. Financed through Grants from Local Windfarms, Private Estates and Subscriptions to the service.

Working in conjuction with Edinburgh University and
HUBS a wireless network link has been established using masts and radio antennae. These work on a Line-of-Sight signal originating from Easter Bush on the outskirts of Edinburgh and Summerhall at Edinburgh University linking to masts around the Heriot hills. These masts have been erected at Nettlingflat, Clints Hill, Corsehope, Blackhope, Dewar, Raeshaw, Hangingshaw, Haltree, Middletoun and Cowbraehill connecting even the most remote 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.  A new relay to connect Temple, Gladhouse, Moorfoot and Middleton areas has recently been brought into operation.  If you are interested in getting connected, then please contact us.


 
Meet the Team
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 funded by a local commercial organisation. Outside contractors are brought in for their expertise to erect the masts and install the broadband service to properties. Whenever possible we endeavour to employ local people and companies to carry out these works.
