Consultation description

Following an Open Market Review launched on 25th March 2021 and running until 22nd April 2021, Building Digital UK is seeking views from the public and other stakeholders with regard to existing or planned gigabit-capable broadband infrastructure in the area of Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.

Background

The government’s ambition is to deliver nationwide gigabit-capable broadband as soon as possible. The market is making great progress in delivering this ambition but there is a need for government intervention in the parts of the country that are not commercially viable. This is why the Budget in 2020 committed £5bn for the hardest to reach parts of the country, ensuring that all areas of the UK can benefit equally.

The £5bn will be spent through a package of co-ordinated and mutually supportive interventions, collectively known as Project Gigabit. As part of this, Building Digital UK is developing a procurement approach for funding contracts to suppliers delivering gigabit-capable wholesale infrastructure.

Gigabit-capable broadband is important for all communities providing faster, more reliable connectivity for homes and businesses everywhere.

Public review description

Building Digital UK requests information and supporting evidence about gigabit-capable broadband infrastructure within the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly intervention area. We wish to hear from all relevant stakeholders - including the public, businesses, internet service providers and broadband infrastructure operators - in relation to the target intervention area found in the below detailed Request For Information (RFI) document.

For the avoidance of doubt, please only respond to this public review if you have a meaningful contribution to make.

Please tell us about your:

  • broadband infrastructure - existing
  • plans for developing / improving broadband infrastructure
  • suppliers should include in their response any existing infrastructure or planned infrastructure - please include in your submission, any existing or planned infrastructure you have gained with assistance from government subsidy (for example, Vouchers, Superfast (NBS 2012 or NBS 2016) and Hubs)
  • interest in bidding for projects and capability to scale

A description of the response format can be found in the Public Review RFI document.
