Ravelrig Heights, Balerno, Edinburgh launched by CALA Homes Scotland told by Scottish PR agencyTWO new developments in a quiet Edinburgh suburb will soon offer buyers access to some of the best broadband speeds across the United Kingdom.

Ravelrig Heights and Kingfisher Park by CALA Homes (East) are both recently launched to homebuyers – and are situated on the eastern edge of Edinburgh, in the picturesque village of Balerno.

The varied range of homes will now not only boast luxury living in a desirable location, but  also offer access to some of the best connectivity in the country.

This is because BT has agreed with CALA to install superfast Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) broadband to both sites, enabling speeds of up to 1 Gigabit per second (1000 Mbps).

With download speeds more than 50 times faster than the UK average, families will be able to experience a connection ideally suited to modern family life both now and in the future.

Philip Hogg, Sales and Marketing Director with CALA Homes (East), said: “As each year passes so does our need for greater connectivity, with many members of a household potentially streaming and downloading onto devices.

“Even many of our phones and security cameras are requiring a fast and consistent internet connection, placing greater strain on slower connections.

“The incredible internet speeds are another feather in the cap for what are already two stunning developments.

“Ravelrig Heights offers buyers the chance to buy from a selection of prestigious, detached homes and the ultrafast broadband will be another feature to attract those looking for the best.

“First-class internet will also be great contributor to modern family life for those moving into their new homes at Kingfisher Park.”

The UK currently ranks 31st in the world for broadband speeds, lagging well behind the majority of Europe.

In layman’s terms, a home with average UK broadband speed could take over an hour to fully download a HD version of a Lord of the Rings film, but those with the new speeds in Balerno will be able to stream their favourite high quality content within just a few minutes.

Philip added: “Balerno is already the perfect location with its abundance of shops, bars, restaurants, leisure facilities and walking routes and the great news about internet speeds in just another string to its bow.”

Ravelrig Heights is a development featuring a selection of four and five bedroom detached homes, set in quiet cul-de-sacs and exclusive lanes with stunning views from the western edge of the capital.

Kingfisher Park offers a wide range of homes, with four and five bedroom family homes now released for reservation as part of its first phase. Designed with a wealth of outdoor space, including a play park, the new development creates a community feel, perfect for young families.
