Councillors have approved the extension of a contract which delivers a local authority’s wireless radio network to public sector sites.
The business services committee of Aberdeenshire Council approved extending the contract so it can continue to provide the necessary network services to sites for the next three years.
A network of wireless radio connections have, for a number of years, been providing the connectivity required by schools, libraries and offices.
Chairman of the committee Councillor Jim Gifford said: “Every community across Aberdeenshire has an interest in the expansion of the technology available to them – council services, businesses and residents alike.
“There are a number of threads which all weave together and the cumulative impact of all the different strands of work will mean an improved level of digital service.
“The discussion at the meeting was roundly supported by elected members and I was pleased that we were in a position to endorse the report, which helps us be innovative, forward-looking and working in partnership.”
