The role played by a government-funded initiative to deliver broadband to Scotland’s most hard-to-reach communities is the focus of a new review commissioned by Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
Scotland’s largest community broadband network, which was developed by local people to bring better connections to some of Lochaber’s hardest to reach broadband spots, is expanding.
More than nine out of ten homes and businesses in Nairn can now access high speed fibre broadband.
High speed broadband has arrived on the small Hebridean island of Scalpay. A wireless link is providing access to the same mainstream fibre based services as is available on the mainland, without the need for subsea cabling.
More rural communities in Argyll and Bute are now able to connect to high-speed fibre thanks to the £428M Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband roll-out.
