Broadband – Highlands and Islands

Around 80% of homes and businesses, in more than 290 communities across every part of the Highlands and Islands, can access superfast broadband. Over the past five years, we have led the £146m Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband (DSSB) project which has built a fibre network for our region. Coverage stretches from North Roe in Shetland to Southend in Kintyre. It has dramatically changed access to good connectivity in our region - providing the core infrastructure needed to deliver domestic and commercial broadband, and making it possible for mobile operators to reach further with data services. The DSSB project is drawing to a close. It has reached more places than originally planned, partly through efficient delivery and also thanks to extra funding as a result of good take-up in the region. There is further to go to reach everyone. The Scottish Government has committed £600m for the next steps in its digital programme. Find out more about broadband in your area.
