The Intervention Strategy sets out the Government's approach to ensure that high speed broadband is provided for areas where there is no existing or planned commercial network. On the 22 December 2015 we published the updated NBP Intervention Strategy. This updated version takes into account inputs from members of the public, industry and stakeholders. These were received during our public consultation that took place in July 2015.
This document sets out a series of detailed Government policy objectives in respect of the proposed State intervention. Specifically it details the key elements of the intervention - what services we require and how they will be delivered. The Strategy is supported by the expert reports, available below. We set up a Steering Group to provide guidance on the delivery of the NBP Intervention Strategy. A major part of the Intervention Strategy involves the procurement of a company or companies to bring high speed broadband to all households and businesses within the Intervention Area.
Around this time, we also carried out a consultation on managing the map pre, during and post procurement. This Managing the Map report is also available below.
