We’ve had a very good response to our request for views on how we should proceed after cancelling the procurement recently. Our choice is between a new procurement with a 400% larger budget and a 180% larger area or waiting for the new Government R100 programme. In our post here we describe the detail of what each option means for broadband provision for the area, as well as our recommendation – which is to proceed with the procurement and ignore R100.
For those people who have already responded, we are very grateful, and for those who haven’t yet, could you please do so as soon as possible? We need to get as wide a range of views as possible so that we can move forward confident that we have community support.
