Consultation

Project Gigabit - Public Review Launch in West Yorkshire and parts of North Yorkshire

Purpose of the consultation

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 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 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 at 5pm and closes on 18 July 2022 at 5pm.
