Title: Scottish Government - Reaching 100% Superfast Broadband Programme

Notice Type: 01 Prior Information Notice (PIN)
Has Documents: Yes
Abstract: The purpose of this programme is to facilitate the deployment of infrastructure that will support superfast broadband connections (i.e. above 30 megabit per second (mbps)) to premises that will not receive such a service with existing or planned infrastructure by the end of 2021 with significant progress by the end of 2018. The programme builds on the investment in superfast broadband that has been realised through the two Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband (DSSB) programmes being run by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) and the Scottish Government Rest of Scotland (ROS). We have estimated there may be around 200-000 - 300,000 white premises to be addressed by the R100 programme. For various reasons including state aid requirements it is likely that the remaining premises will be split into several procurements or lots within one or more procurements.
CPV: 32412100, 32000000, 45232300, 64200000.
