Scot-Tel Gould is a Wireless Network Provider. This means rather than using traditional telephone cables to deliver high speed data services to you, we use a network of aerials.
We run a ‘Core Network’ of aerials which transmit our wireless signal around the whole of the Grampian Region, and we draw from the Core Network into each community, and then on to each of the businesses, Government buildings and Schools.
Duplexed speeds between 20Mbps and 2Gbps throughout Aberdeenshire plus the county of Moray. Although there is considerable availability to the link network within urban areas there are also an extensive number of rural sites to deliver high performance at locations where conventional infrastructure may struggle to be cost effective.
Scot-Tel-Gould Ltd has a licensed band of frequencies for use within the Grampian region that is exclusive to the Core network.
The link infrastructure is sufficiently extensive for us to be confident that there will be a location on the network that is linkable to any potential new subscriber. In order to ensure our signal can reach as much of the community as possible we use customers as relay points to help transmit our signal onwards throughout the area. Community Access Points are where we install a transmitter aerial as well as a receiver aerial, so they can relay the network onto the other areas. The aerial array is small and discreet. These aerials can be installed on Village Halls, Farm Buildings, and more frequently Commercial Premisses and Council Offices.
In the rare event of inaccessibility, relay sites usually provide a cost effective solution to obtain link network access. Any premises can apply to become a Community Access Point, and in return we have an incentive scheme to recognise your commitment.
If you would like to apply to host a Community Access Point, please contact us.

A comprehensive linked infrastructure has been implemented throughout Aberdeenshire plus the county of Moray to support networks with duplex speeds between 20Mbps and 2Gbps. The main backbone came into service in 2011. There has been continual expansion since that time to satisfy customer demand across the region. Use of the network is dominated by council users; this includes all schools within Aberdeenshire. Other users include Ski Centres plus a number of private businesses.
Each customer that subscribes to STG's service will have an aerial fitted to the top of their property which brings the signal into the building via a cable. This is connected either straight to a computer for a single use system, or to a wireless router enabling multiple devices to be connected to the internet wirelessly.
We run a cable from the aerial into your premisses. Installations vary from small externally mounted panels, approximately the size of an IPAD, to small dish antennas that are not too dissimilar to those used for satellite TV. Internal equipment is generally the size of an average broadband wireless router.
We are continually looking to expand our services, and therefore if we do not currently supply our wireless network into your community you can help start the process to get it there. So whether you are a business owner, Council or a frustrated individual who is desperate to get superfast connections – anyone can start the process, and we are here to help you do that.

Several network node sites are powered by solar and/or wind. Scot-Tel-Gould Ltd. is extremely proud of these self-sufficient sites on the network. The provision of communication services without the need to take energy from a standard service provider makes delivery entirely ‘green’. This is only possible on lightly used sites that are supporting a small number of users but this still represents a significant contribution to the saving of unwanted emissions that are normally associated with the use of electrical power. As well as the benefits of green footprint, reliability is improved as there is no susceptibility to power cuts.
With an unlicensed or light licensed system equipment operates within a band of frequencies that are also available to other users. Generally, equipment will search for a frequency that is not being used and operate on that frequency. This process is perfectly acceptable in rural areas or anywhere where there is not an abundance of radio systems. However, if there are many users in an area, interference will be an issue as the availability of frequencies will be limited. Licensed radio spectrum provides a structure to ensure that no other user can operate on the frequencies identified by license. This ensures that users cannot be ‘busied off’ the network and maximum bandwidth (and therefore speed) is maintained at all times.
Combining the excellent track record and reputation of both companies in the delivery and support of wireless communication networks and solutions to local authority, public safety, military and leading national telecommunications providers. The Scot-Tel-Gould partnership was created to combine the strengths of Scot-Tel Ltd and Gould Electronics Two Way Radio Limited. Together offering an all-encompassing wireless communications portfolio.

Pupils at an Aberdeenshire primary school have each been given their own tablet computer as part of an innovative pilot programme.
Homework is assigned on Showbie – an app dubbed the ‘paperless classroom’ – and parents, pupils and teachers can share work.
Councillor Isobel Davidson, chairwoman of the local authority’s education committee, praised the scheme. She said: “The school is leading the way and it excites me to see this project progress as not only does it teach pupils new skills, it also engages and connects the world around young people.
