Open Market Review (OMR)

East Riding of Yorkshire Council are reaching out to broadband infrastructure suppliers who are operational in the area to better understand the level of broadband access across the area in order to inform future plans.

Data currently held by the council dates back to February 2018, so, as part of an open market review, the council would like to capture current and up-to-date information relating to levels of broadband access across the area and investment planned over the next three years.

This open market review is not currently a precursor to a full procurement or public consultation, however, if a full procurement is a requirement in the future, all respondents to the open market review will have the opportunity to validate any outcomes determined by information received.

In addition, East Riding of Yorkshire Council would invite all stakeholders (e.g. including the public, businesses, internet service providers and broadband infrastructure operators) to provide feedback about the proposed eligible areas being considered for investment at this stage.

Next steps

Please review the Open Market Review document below and respond before 11.59pm on 15 September 2021.
