Mark Armstrong, strategic director of resources at Angus Council said that joining was a “significant step” for the council and that it would help it reach its goal of being fully digital by 2020.

The council has more than 60 educational and coporate bodies and serves 108,000 people. The service being provided involves 63 circuits with bandwidths of up to 1Gb a second.

The network is run by Capita, and the contract was first signed in February 2014. More than 3,750 sites and nearly 4,000 circuits have been connected since that time, according to Capita.
