The Scottish government has today (Monday) announced that Reawick has received improved digital connectivity as part of a £28.75m programme. The Scottish 4G Infill (S4GI) programme is aimed to help more people – from Shetland to the Borders – get online. “The Scottish government wants to build on that, through our National Strategy for Economic Transformation, to capitalise on the ability of enhanced digital connectivity to encourage innovation and growth,” she added. Chief technology officer at BT Group, Howard Watson, said: “In an increasingly digital world, bringing reliable connectivity to remote areas of Scotland is ever more important.”
