Project Gigabit: Cheshire
Wednesday 21st February 2024

Asked by: Edward Timpson (Conservative - Eddisbury)

Question to the Department for Science, Innovation & Technology:

To ask the Secretary of State for Science, Innovation and Technology, what recent assessment she has made of the progress on procurement for the Project Gigabit contract for Cheshire.

Answered by Julia Lopez - Minister of State (Department for Science, Innovation and Technology)

As part of Project Gigabit, in July 2023 we launched a procurement to invite suppliers to bid for a contract to bring gigabit-capable broadband to premises in Cheshire that are unlikely to be reached by broadband suppliers' commercial rollout plans. We aim to award a contract to the successful supplier by the end of March 2024.
