S5W-03019: Lewis Macdonald (North East Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 20 September 2016

To ask the Scottish Government (a) how many and (b) what percentage of premises in each Scottish Parliamentary constituency do not have access to broadband.

Answered by: Fergus Ewing 3 October 2016

It is not possible to state definitely which premises do not have access to broadband. The answer is dependent upon the commercial deployment of broadband, which the Scottish Government does not hold information on.

The 2016 Ofcom Communications Market Report estimated Scotland's broadband coverage to be 99.86% of all homes and businesses.
