To ask the Scottish Government what percentage of premises in each local authority area had been connected to fibre broadband through commercial deployment by 2012.
Answered by: Fergus Ewing 7 December 2017
We do not hold information on the percentage of premises, in each local authority area that had been connected to fibre broadband through commercial deployment by 2012.
In 2012, as part of the Open Market Review (OMR) for the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband Programme, we gathered commercial data that showed the predicted percentage of premises connected to fibre broadband through commercial deployment without our intervention, over a three year period.
