Internet service provider HighNet, which is working to make Glasgow Scotland’s third “gigabit city”, has opened an office on St Vincent Street.

The firm said it has invested £250,000 in developing what is its first premises in the Central Belt at office development The Beacon, and has hired eight employees in the city.

David Siegel, managing director at HighNet, said: “Over the past 21 years we have grown our business throughout Scotland from our base in Inverness.”

The firm is working in partnership with CityFibre on the Glasgow Gigabit City project, a 40-kilometre multi-million-pound pure fibre investment to transform the location’s business broadband offering.

Siegel said that given the project’s launch, “it was vital for HighNet to set up a local presence so that we could serve our rapidly growing network of staff, partners and customers in the city”. He added that HighNet looked forward to playing its role in delivering the initiative.
