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 a Public Review to help identify areas in West Yorkshire and parts of North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire that may be suitable for future public funding for gigabit-capable broadband. There are East Riding of Yorkshire premises in both Lot 8 (West Yorkshire and parts of North Yorkshire) and Lot 20 (South Yorkshire).
BDUK is seeking information and supporting evidence from suppliers - in relation to the presence of gigabit-capable broadband infrastructure within the project area.
They wish to hear from all relevant stakeholders - including the public, businesses, internet service providers and broadband infrastructure operators - particularly in relation to the proposed mapped eligible areas.
This Public Review opens on Friday 17 June and closes on 18 July 2022.
