Rural broadband investment for Scotland
Scotland and England are to receive £363 million for rural broadband investment, according to a BBC report at www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-14539380.
Unfortunately the article only outlines how the funding will be broken down in England, as the Scottish Government has yet to decide how to allocate its share of the pot. If my sums are right, having tallied up what the English regions are getting (£281,940,000) it looks like Scotland will be getting just over £81 million. A useful development for many when it happens!
