Lack of mains gas is a pretty good proxy for broadband not spots.

I think there are a lot more houses without gas than are without decent (min
10 Mbps) broadband.

They can get LPG, but it is expensive. Equally you can get satellite broadband on remote islands...

many of the islands have terrestrial links

zoom in on the UK on this map of subsea cables.

Although this misses off some "local" shorter links, such as the ones
to Isle of Wight.....

And a point to point Gigabit microwave link for backhaul is fairly
straightforward for 10s of Km where there is line of sight if you want
something to the smaller offshore bits
