Increasing digital connectivity
There is one Strategic Intervention (SI) to increase connectivity in Scotland, entitled Digital Infrastructure.
The Digital Infrastructure SI aims to:
- deliver 100% superfast broadband access by 2021, which in turn will meet the Operational Programme target of 90% coverage and 40% take-up in the Highlands and Islands
- improve the availability of mobile connectivity across the region, by using linkages to broadband availability
- ensure the underlying infrastructure is in place to support the future growth of high-bandwidth connectivity
Scottish Government Digital Directorate are the sole lead partner for this SI.
