Programme Change to Fastershire Delivery

The purpose of the report is to agree required changes in the programme combined with taking advantage of new opportunities.  The Fastershire Broadband Strategy 2019-22 is in implementation through contracts to network suppliers and bespoke community and business programmes.  Through that implementation there has been a number of factors nationally, within the broadband industry and through the delivery methods that are influencing a change of approach.  This is particularly relevant as the programme needs to address coverage to high cost premises along with the Government’s commitment to reaching 85% of premises with gigabit capability by 2025 and ensuring rural areas are not left behind.
