Politicians at Holyrood have pledged to raise speeds to 30 megabytes per second across the country, a plan unmatched by any other members of the UK.

No date has been set for the completion of the project, but the five-page document states the government hopes to be able to award contracts for the work before the end of the year.

In 2017, £600 million was pledged by Holyrood to the Reaching 100% project.
