DSSB Rest of Scotland Gainshare Public Consultation

DSSB Rest of Scotland Gainshare Public Consultation

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

ISBN: 9781786522481

This document sets out DSSB's plans to further extend coverage of Superfast Broadband across Scotland. This is a State Aid public consultation

Executive Summary

The purpose of this public consultation is to confirm the areas which do not have Next Generation Access (NGA) broadband infrastructure delivering at least 30Mbps, or where there are no plans to provide such infrastructure over the next three years. These are described as “white NGA areas”. This is to enable all interested stakeholders - the public, businesses and telecommunications providers - to comment on the proposed white NGA areas before the use of this £15.6m Gainshare funding is committed. The Scottish Government will then submit its final proposals for the NGA white area, taking account of the outcome of the public consultation, to BDUK's National Competence Centre for clearance.
