The Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband (DSSB) programme has already met its target of providing fibre broadband access to 85% of homes and businesses across Scotland and is on track to reach 95% by the end of 2017/18. At the end of January 2017, DSSB has connected over 700,000 premises from an expected total of around 750,000 at the end of the programme. This is in addition to commercial broadband rollout by BT and other suppliers.
