Good news for Aberdeen in the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement. Apart from the incentives for developing oil and gas, the Chancellor announced that Aberdeen would be one of 12 super-connected cities.
As an international energy city and global technology hub for the oil and gas industry, state-of-the-art digital networks are crucial if Aberdeen is to continue its role as the one of the key drivers of the UK economy.
Given how the city has been overlooked in the past, it is heartening to see that the UK Government has recognised the importance of 21st century communication to support Aberdeen’s international business links.
Superfast broadband is great news for business in Aberdeen. But, of course, it is also good news for those of us who use the internet at home.
