thinkWhere is supporting the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband (DSSB) programme. The ambitious infrastructure programme, designed to maximise the coverage of superfast broadband across Scotland, recently announced that it has achieved its target of 95 per cent fibre coverage. Underpinning work on the DSSB programme, thinkWhere provided a range of services including an extensive address matching exercise, the implementation of a cloud-based Geographical Information System (GIS) and bespoke training. Digital Scotland funding partners include the Scottish Government, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, BT Group, the UK Government through Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), local authorities and the European Regional Development Fund. The GBP 428M DSSB programme is helping to bring high speed broadband to Scotland and is one of the most ambitious infrastructure programmes in Europe.
