says there were never any plans to lay a broadband cable overland to the North Harris
Running a cable in a proposed water mains trench was ruled out in the past - thus
halting the Scottish Water pipeline has no bearing on the future provision of broadband
in the area.
A HIE spokesperson said: “There are areas we can’t reach with the current roll-out.
Primarily these are places with small numbers and scattered homes.
“There was a proposal some time ago suggesting laying fibre with the Hushinish pipe,
but it was not a viable option for the project.”
