Change of focus for Community Broadband Scotland

Published: 24/01/2018

The £600m Scottish Government digital investment incorporates an investment in infrastructure for Scotland’s most remote areas.  

As a result, the HIE Digital Communities team will refocus on:

  • delivering community broadband projects already committed
  • giving advice to the previously supported operational networks
  • supporting the Scottish Government on elements of the Reaching 100% (R100) programme.

Relevant information and documents relating to previous CBS activity remain online here. Communities can keep up to date with the latest information on the current fibre broadband roll-out at

Zoe Laird, Head of Communities Infrastructure at HIE said: “We thank all of the communities who have engaged with CBS for their support, hard work and passion over the years. Some fantastic results have been achieved and the R100 programme looks set to have a transformative impact and truly bridge the digital divide.”
