Extending coverage of gigabit-capable broadband across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly – Public Review

Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly will be among the first areas in the country to benefit from the Government’s £5bn Project Gigabit scheme, bringing gigabit speeds to hard to reach areas.

Building Digital UK (BDUK) conducted an Open Market Review (OMR) during March and April 2021 to understand from suppliers if there were any current or planned investment over the next three years in broadband infrastructure in the region.

Now, a Public Review process aims to validate the outcome of the OMR and ensure that the right areas are targeted for government investment.

The public and stakeholders (including businesses, internet service providers and broadband infrastructure operators) are invited to provide feedback about the proposed eligible areas for government investment set out in the public review document.

The review is open until Monday 16 August 2021 and can be found at the following Gov.UK page:
