Date lodged: 27 July 2021

Question

To ask the Scottish Government what percentage of households in (a) Scotland and (b) each local authority it estimates will access superfast broadband through its voucher scheme.

Current status: Answered by Kate Forbes on 24 August 2021


Answer

The following table provides a breakdown of the number of properties across all 32 Scottish local authorities that are eligible for vouchers through the Reaching 100% (R100) Scottish Broadband Voucher Scheme (SBVS) as at 22 July 2021 ( these figures are subject to change, depending on ongoing R100 contract and commercial build ).

We cannot provide a breakdown between residential and SME properties. However, the breakdown does show percentages for both the main voucher ( MVS – worth up to £5,000 ) and the interim voucher ( IVS – worth up to £400 ).
