Connectivity infrastructure in Scotland is to set for a major boost after ministers unveiled plans to invest over £100m in digital as part of a recovery and renewal budget.
The Scottish Government will plough £98.2m into high quality broadband and mobile coverage projects in order to respond to the needs of citizens and businesses who have been increasingly reliant on technology during lockdown.
An additional £7m will be secured towards making Scotland a ‘world class hub for digital business’, as part of a new investment to drive economic recovery, bolster public services and support families.
Presenting the Scottish Budget 2021-22, Finance Secretary Kate Forbes announced an overall package of support for jobs and skills totalling around £1.1 billion.
