Phones, internet and mail in Scotland

Scotland has had its share of connectivity issues in the past. The rugged terrain in rural and island areas, and its dispersed population in the Highlands and its islands, have made it difficult for fast and high-quality internet to reach everyone. However, the country is currently undertaking what has been called “the highest value telecommunications infrastructure investment in all of Europe”, in order to make sure that a high-speed fibre optic broadband reaches the 95% of the country. Scotland also boasts a well-developed telecom network, and enjoys the Royal Mail postal services.
