Chancellor George Osborne has revealed the ten UK cities that will receive government investment to make them ‘super-connected’, with ultrafast fixed broadband access, and large areas of public wireless connectivity.
The ten cities will share £100 million to help deliver ambitious plans to use their super-connected status to drive growth, attract new businesses and transform the way services are provided and accessed.
Scott Logic has offices in four of the super-connected cities: Bristol, Edinburgh, London, and Newcastle. These cities are set to benefit from a minimum investment of £26m, which could rise to as much as £54m.
Mr Osborne said: “These plans have the potential to create in the UK ten of the best cities in the world for broadband connectivity.”
