BIS NGA Consultation Response April 2010 Bookmark and Share Button

The Panel responded to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills' consultation on how the Next Generation Fund should be spent in order to stimulate rollout of NGA. Our response recognises that the Fund has been set up with a view to achieving rollout to at least 90 per cent of the UK population by 2017. 

There are five main areas on which the Panel has commented: which technology should be used; the definition of NGA; regional versus national procurement; where roll out should begin and end; and open access and competition. So we have focused on responding to the consultation questions that are most relevant to these issues.
