Scotland achieves broadband for all

May 19, 2009

It would initially have been an impossible task to provide a full broadband service to every home and business.

In the UK it is not going to be easy in remote areas, some of which do not even have access to a phone line, yet Scotland has achieved broadband for all.

The Scottish program started in mid 2001 and has cost something in the region of £25 million.

It shows that the impossible is achievable with Scotland boasting some of the UK’s most remote areas.

The broadband connection speed of 0.5 Mbps may not be what some broadband customers would expect to be receiving but, for households who have not been able to get broadband at all, even this speed can make a lot of difference to their lives.
