Investment in the digital infrastructure of any city, town, village or hamlet is critical and integral to the prosperity of that location.

At Placeity, our many years of experience, research and data backs up this statement.

The pandemic and the whole world being forced to change how we all live and work, has demonstrated the vital importance of a robust digital infrastructure for all locations.

As communities, we need to generate, control and share accurate, independent, fact-checked information at a hyper-local level to serve our local citizens.

Global social media platforms play a large and dominant role in this, but places should not be solely dependent on them.

That is why the Placeity.com concept was developed and expanded for many locations to benefit from.

The financial investment to date to set up the digital architecture and platforms has been made on a private basis by the directors of Stirling Internet Ltd, established in Scotland since 1997.
