More than a hundred households in a GHA multi-storey will be able to connect to the internet as part of a new project to encourage digital participation.
GHA, which is part of Wheatley Group, has teamed up with the Scottish Government and BT to give tenants in a block in Kirkton Avenue, Knightswood, affordable wi-fi access.
It’s the first large-scale Scottish project of its kind and is believed to be among the first in Europe.
The trial project will see each of the 138 homes in the GHA block offered a new tablet to connect to high speed wi-fi access points throughout the building, linked back into the main BT network via a single fibre cable.
