Norfolk to make broadband decision on September 10th
Norfolk County Council members on September 10th 2012 will be making a very important decision between Fujitsu and BT in terms of who will receive the County Council and BDUK funds to improve access to better broadband in the county.
The contractors need to have submitted their bids, which will include details on how much funding they are willing to put into the project by August 29th, with the two weeks between then and the decision date to allow the project team to evaluate the bids.
Norfolk with its better broadband campaign netted 15,000 signatures (~1.7% of Norfolk population). The date of 10th September should see the decision made public, and the public can attend the meeting if they wish. Actual work on delivering connections is not expected to start until early 2013.
