R100 - Superfast access for all
Superfast access for all
No-one is forgotten in the superfast journey.
When will there be 100% superfast coverage?
The Scottish Government has committed to providing superfast broadband access - speeds of at least 30Mbps - to every home and business in Scotland. Unique in the UK, the Reaching 100% (R100) programme builds on the success of the DSSB programme and will ensure universal superfast broadband access.
The 100% target will be met as a result of three strands of activity – the R100 contracts, the R100 Scottish Broadband Voucher Scheme and commercial coverage. Contracts were awarded in three geographical areas – North, Central and South.
All of the planned R100 build in the South and North, and the vast majority in Central, will be gigabit capable - this is more than 30 times faster than the original commitment to deliver 30Mbps. As much of the technology delivered will go beyond the original superfast commitment, the engineering works will take time and will be phased in over the coming years.
The national demand-led R100 Scottish Broadband Voucher Scheme can provide help in the form of a subsidy worth up to £5,000 if your home or business broadband speed is less than 30Mbps.
