The DSSB Programme

The Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband programme is a key element of the wider Digital Scotland Programme.

The programme is divided into two sub-projects with dedicated teams – one covering the ‘Highlands and Islands’, and one for the ‘Rest of Scotland’ .

Highlands and Islands

The terrain and dispersed population of Scotland’s more remote areas poses some complex challenges, and has involved installing approximately 800km of new fibre infrastructure and 400km of subsea cabling.
