Highland Community Broadband

UCT undertook the initial feasibility work and research involved in supplying community broadband provision to some of our most isolated comunitities. UCT supported the project in the early stages and helped to encourage user subscription to allow the project to raise finance to start the company. Highland Community Broadband (HCB), a community interest company (CIC) was formed, and although no longer affiliated with the Trust, we support their ambitions to deliver  high speed internet to EVERYONE in the area, not just Ullapool.

This Community Broadband project is designed for communities excluded from the Superfast roll-out. It will provide fast internet for all Ullapool, Loch Broom, Little Lochbroom, Coigach and up to Elphin.
