Challenge / Goal
Aberdeen City Region is one of the most digitally active and dependent areas in Scotland. This demand is not matched by the supply of world class connectivity and competition. To address this, the Aberdeen City Region Deal aims to provide hyper-fast connectivity for business premises and lay the vital spines for residential superfast connections in the Aberdeen City Region Deal area. The will lay the foundations for further investment in 5G, Wi-Fi and sensor networks. Having excellent digital connectivity is becoming essential tool to help support and grow our regional economy.
Aberdeen City Council invested £2million in the connection of 57 Aberdeen City Council schools, buildings and community centres through what is known as the City Region Deal Digital strand of work. This work is additional to Aberdeen City having already built a core network over 120 Aberdeen City Council premises including schools, health care centres and community centres. Through this investment, this has enabled further private investment to the city by City Fibre to provide full fibre to the premise to over 90,000 homes and businesses in the city.
