Broadband rollout reaches new milestone

Over 750,000 Scottish homes and businesses can now connect to fibre broadband thanks to the £428 million Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband programme. It means that more than 90% of Scotland now has access to fibre broadband thanks to the programme and commercial deployment, which is part of the Scottish Government’s commitment to deliver 100% superfast broadband access across Scotland by 2021.

The milestone was passed as Connectivity Secretary Fergus Ewing visited BRAG Enterprise in Lochgelly – a social enterprise benefitting from the arrival of fibre broadband in the town.

The Digital Scotland programme is delivered through two projects – led by Highlands and Islands Enterprise in its area and the Scottish Government in the rest of Scotland. Other funding partners include the UK Government through Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), BT, local authorities and the EU via the European Regional Development Fund. BT is investing £126 million in the programme.
