New build developments - delivering gigabit-capable connections: consultation analysis

Consultation analysis of the new build developments: delivering gigabit-capable connections consultation.


The Scottish Government recognises the ever-increasing importance of digital connectivity in our daily lives. The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated how important this was for keeping in touch with friends and family, working from home or accessing digital public services. Our Digital Strategy outlines the role of digital infrastructure in ensuring economic, social and environmental wellbeing of Scotland.

Access to digital infrastructure is a key building block in transforming our economy. The adoption of digital technology underpins multiple strands of activity from the reform of public services, digital healthcare and tackling digital exclusion to ensure no one is left behind.

As a key component of this it is important that we take steps to ensure that new build housing developments are future proofed with digital connectivity that supports our wider ambitions.
