Scottish Government Reaching 100% programme - Open Market Review

Friday, December 16, 2016

ISBN: 9781786526847

The purpose of this Open Market Review (OMR) is to establish existing and planned (next 3 years) commercial coverage of broadband services across Scotland by all existing and any prospective, NGA broadband infrastructure providers.

Executive Summary

This OMR is intended as a precursor to a formal public consultation document. The UK applies a best practice process that promotes the use of both an OMR and a Public Consultation, the latter being conducted in a manner consistent with the requirements of the Broadband Guidelines. We consider that early market engagement at this stage is an essential and extremely important part of our early market research. The results of the OMR will assist us with understanding the broadband infrastructure (NGA) already in place and where there are plans for investment in such infrastructure in the coming three years and a significant step in the design of the intervention area to be targeted by the new contract.

Responses are required to be submitted by 16th January 2017.
