II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The Suffolk better broadband programme is extending coverage of better broadband connectivity across the county of Suffolk. Suffolk’s overarching aspiration is to deliver full coverage of better broadband services to all premises in Suffolk as soon as possible. With contracted plans already in place to deliver better broadband to around 98 % of Suffolk premises by 2020, Suffolk County Council (SCC) now intends to procure further coverage of NGA broadband infrastructure (capable of delivering download speeds of at least 30 Mbps) in remaining areas within the county where such broadband is currently unavailable. SCC wishes to undertake market engagement with suitably qualified and technically capable suppliers in relation to Phase 3. Please complete the online survey at https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/W6CB0/ by 14.6.2019 to participate in the market engagement process. SCC may undertake further market engagement after the results of the survey have been considered.
