Our Community Study Tour at the end of August took delegates from the Forth Valley and Lomond area of Scotland to Sweden.
Over three intensive days - including travel to the far northern Norrbotten region - they studied the astonishing successes flowing from far-sighted investment in high-quality local digital access networks.
Do Swedes have broadband fit for purpose? - a delegate's view (MSWord Doc download, 39KB) gives a brief overview and the full detailed report (with video link) is available on request.
SSNf - The Swedish Urban Networks Association
Lunet - the municipal network in Luleå in Northern Sweden
IT Norbotten and Healthcare - our visit to a northern hospital
Utskit - the network in Linköping in the southern part of central Sweden
Municipal Enterprise - a presentation by the Mayor of Linköping

The Study Tour was part-funded by Forth Valley and Lomond LEADER with support from the EU, the Scottish government and HMG/DCMS
