Rural areas in Scotland will soon have access to superfast broadband as part of an initiative by the University of the Highlands and Islands and Edinburgh University – and backed by the Scottish Government’s Community Broadband Scotland programme – to get everyone online.
The network will be available to residents of Eigg, Rum, Muck and Canna, as well as some parts of the Scottish mainland.
According to researchers, the method being used – connecting the network to the internet via the Gaelic College on Skye instead of telephone exchange boxes as these are located too far apart – could be used across the UK to bring broadband to remote areas that currently do not have it.
