Increasing digital connectivity

There is one Strategic Intervention (SI) to increase connectivity in Scotland, entitled Digital Infrastructure.

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.
