Shetland MSP Tavish Scott is urging anyone concerned about poor mobile coverage to get involved in a Scottish Government consultation on 4G "notspots".




Scottish 4G Infill Programme Consultation: Request for Information

The Scottish Government (SG) and Scottish Futures Trust (SFT) have worked partnership to develop the Scottish 4G Infill Programme (S4GI). The S4GI programme’s aim is to deliver 4G LTE infrastructure and services to around 50-60 complete “notspots” in Scotland, and is backed with up to £25 million, which includes matched funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to support activity in the Highlands and Islands region of Scotland. The programme has undergone a procurement process and in July 2018 appointed WHP Telecoms Ltd as the infrastructure provider.

The government were meant to be providing a 4g service to the whole of the UK for the emergency services but it seems to be behind schedule and over budget.

Goodness me. Yet again Westminster shows just how effective and organised they are, while putting time management to shame - along with everything else that is in any way constructive.
