Project Gigabit: Open Market Review

Request for information 

The government is on a mission to deliver lightning-fast, reliable broadband to everyone in the UK and is investing £5 billion in Project Gigabit to ensure that hard-to-reach communities are not left out.

Building Digital UK (BDUK) is carrying out an Open Market Review (OMR) in five areas including Oxfordshire and West Berkshire to help identify premises that may be suitable for future public funding for gigabit-capable broadband.

BDUK is seeking information and supporting evidence from suppliers about the presence of gigabit-capable broadband infrastructure within the project areas. We actively encourage you to respond to this OMR if you have existing network coverage or plan to build infrastructure within the next three years.

This consultation opens on 12 August 2021 and closes on 13 September 2021.

For more information, please see BDUK’s page below:
