Galashiels and Coldstream in line for broadband boost

Two more Borders towns are in line for next generation broadband early next year.

BT has announced plans to make the faster service available to 8,000 properties in Galashiels and 1,500 in Coldstream by next spring.

It is already offered in Selkirk, Peebles and Kelso, and is planned for Eyemouth and Hawick.

It should double download speeds in the areas involved to up to 20 Mbps.
