Project Gigabit

Project Gigabit overview

Project Gigabit is a £5 billion government infrastructure project that brings together everything the government is doing to provide fast and reliable digital connectivity for the country.

It includes schemes such as the Gigabit Broadband Voucher scheme (GBVS) as well as phased contracts to those hard-to-reach parts of the UK that will need government support towards the cost of gigabit-capable broadband.

Regional procurements are managed by Building Digital UK (BDUK), part of the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT), and are coming forward in phases, in support of the gigabit rollout. Commercial broadband network suppliers will compete to win the contracts to help deliver Project Gigabit. Of the relevant contracts, Lot 30 covers Wiltshire and South Gloucestershire, including Swindon.
