Digital Scotland: Users and benefits

We will identify groups, activities and communities that will be affected by Scotland's Digital Strategy. These will include communities of interest as well as geographic communities, and business sectors as well as social groups:
  • Commerce
  • Entertainment
  • Farming and fishing
  • Tourism
  • Education
  • Health
  • Government
We will assess, and where possible quantify, the requirements of different groups and the benefits digital inclusion may bring.

Economic framework

We hope to demonstrate that:
  • Broadband is not only the web and email—it's also a radio, a tv, a daily newspaper, a library and a town hall.
  • Digital infrastructure contributes to education, health care, energy, public safety, and democratic engagement.
  • It supports collaboration and innovation, and provides producers and entrepreneurs with access to global markets.
  • It makes remote communities more sustainable, and supports social inclusion.
