Project Gigabit: Open Market Review

Closed 22 Nov 2021

Opened 20 Oct 2021


An Open Market Review request for information from broadband network providers operating in intervention areas identified in the second release of Phase 2 of Project Gigabit.

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 6 areas including parts of Northamptonshire in Lot 12 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 - in relation to the presence of gigabit capable broadband infrastructure within the project areas.

If you have existing network coverage or plan to build infrastructure within the next three years, we actively encourage you to respond to this OMR.

This consultation will run from Wednesday 20 October 2021 to 5pm on Monday 22 November 2021
