3. Please could you tell me the estimated number of properties which are expected to be connected when each lot is completed?

The below table shows the number of premises contracted for delivery in each of the three regional lots (Lot 1 North, Lot 2 Central, and Lot 3 South). Please note these figures relate to the number of premises contracted for connection via R100 contracts build only. Figures for R100 SBVS cannot be provided because, as it is a demand-led scheme, the Scottish Government does not hold data on the number of premises that will secure a future connection over the lifetime of the R100 programme.

These figures are accurate as at 15/12/2022.
