Wales To Boost Broadband Quality
By: MarkJ - 03 August, 2006 (12:48 PM)

The Welsh Assembly has begun inviting tenders to supply high capacity links to sites around the country as part of a Public Sector Broadband Network that could be worth up to 150m:

The deal, which could be worth up to 150m, is part of the Public Sector Broadband Aggregation Programme, which is aggregating demand for broadband connections. It will make use of the physical broadband network already in place in Wales, and provide connections for a range of public service organisations.

A spokesperson for the Assembly Government told GC News: "The Public Sector Broadband Aggregation (PSBA) programme is about economies, efficiencies and interoperability.

"Currently, individual sectors procure their own connectivity. The objective of the PSBA project is to aggregate the demand for connectivity to procure a single high bandwidth solution.

The move could be seen as an attempt to improve upon existing broadband infrastructure, since most places are already covered. More @ The Register.
