Public Consultation on broadband coverage in Northumberland

Please find enclosed a public consultation report on the current and proposed coverage of broadband in Northumberland for the next 3 years.

This report is for state aid purposes and reflects market data we have received from network operators who deliver or plan to deliver broadband in this period.

We are seeking responses from businesses and residents, as well as network operators to confirm our coverage mapping and data is correct. The areas defined as not receiving a broadband service will then be included in a procurement process for the new broadband roll out programme which is due to start in Spring 2015.

The report provides details on how to respond to the consultation or alternatively we are hosting three drop in sessions where residents and businesses can come along to discuss the report and what it means for them.

Drop – in sessions are planned as follows:

  • Thursday 8th January 2015, 10-12pm – Council Chamber, Prospect House, Hexham, NE46 1XD
  • Thursday 8th January 2015, 2-4pm – Northumberland Hall, Alnwick, NE66 1TN
  • Thursday 15th January 2015, 6-7.30pm – West Hartford Fire Station, Cramlington, NE23 3JP

The consultation closes on 19th January 2015 and all responses must be received by this date. If you have any queries please contact us via info@inorthumberland.org.uk
