Connectivity

The Orkney mainland and the island of Westray enjoy efficient internet provision with over 75% of premises now connected to superfast broadband.

Other areas are serviced by a standard 8Mgb connection with faster speeds available via satellite and wireless internet providers.

A considerable extension to the fibre optic broadband network is planned as part of the Scottish Government’s R100 scheme which aims to bring 100% coverage across Scotland by 2021.

Find out if your area can access superfast broadband.

4G mobile internet is also available throughout Orkney and the area has been selected for 5G trials which are underway.
