The Digital Ambassadors visit regularly and are always happy to help promote the business by posting on their Facebook pages.
I was impressed by how helpful the digital ambassadors were when they first came in, especially for being so young. I felt they listened to us intently and that they are very approachable to small businesses like ourselves. I am very grateful for their help in promoting my shop, as they are whenever we help out by working with them in providing prizes.

Helping Businesses Go Faster
For those not familiar with the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband (DSSB) programme, the Scottish Government and its partners are busy installing the infrastructure required to bring faster internet speeds across Scotland, in areas which weren’t going to be included in the private sector’s commercial plans. £410 million is being invested in the DSSB programme by the Scottish Government, Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE), BT, the UK Government through Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), local authorities and the European Regional Development Fund. The DSSB roll-out consists of two projects:- one covering the Highlands and Islands area and the other covering the rest of Scotland. The principles behind the programme involve bringing faster speeds to as many people as possible with the funding available. This is a really complex and challenging engineering project. In fact, it’s the most ambitious fibre infrastructure project yet undertaken in Europe.
