Open market review of broadband infrastructure
The Open Market Review (OMR) is now closed. Thank you to all who submitted responses.
Dorset Council and Building Digital UK (BDUK) are launching a public review in Dorset (excluding Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch).
Having asked broadband networks operators for their current and planned broadband infrastructure coverage at the OMR stage, BDUK and Dorset are offering a further opportunity to comment and validate the information collected during the public review across Dorset.
This consultation (known as a public review) opens at midday on 24 June 2021 and closes at 5pm on 1 August 2021.
We are launching an Open Market Review (OMR) to identify potential areas for government intervention. We are running this OMR Request for Information (RFI) to confirm where existing broadband infrastructure currently exists or is planned to be built in the next 3 years across the county of Dorset.
Our goal is to ensure we target the parts of the county that need government support first. By working with us, you will help to maximise the use of public subsidy to help provide ever faster, better connectivity across all parts of Dorset. You will help us to identify areas which will be left out because they are not commercially viable, thereby bringing significant benefits to the Dorset economy.
This is important, so that we can ensure we target the right areas and avoid over-building commercial infrastructure. Therefore, if you have existing coverage, or plan to build infrastructure within the next 3 years, we encourage you to respond to this OMR.
