BT Selected For BB Aggregation Project

Posted: 15th Mar, 2004 By: MarkJ
The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has selected BT along with 16 other companies to help supply its recently announced Broadband Aggregation Project (BAP):

100 PER CENT BROADBAND ENABLEMENT MOVES CLOSER AS BT SELECTED TO SUPPLY BROADBAND AGGREGATION PROJECT

A breakthrough in the challenge to achieve 100 per cent broadband coverage across the UK by 2005 came today (March 15, 2004) with the selection of BT and 16 other companies as suppliers to the Department of Trade and Industry's (DTI) Broadband Aggregation Project (BAP).

The Broadband Aggregation Project, which co-ordinates public sector broadband procurement, will accelerate delivery of broadband infrastructure to help more UK communities and businesses to realise the benefits of high speed internet access, while delivering better value for customers and savings to taxpayers.

As one of the preferred suppliers, BT plans to make available a comprehensive set of broadband products and service offerings, designed and priced specifically for the public sector. BT will also be able to offer Regional Aggregation Boards and their customers marketing campaign support to help raise awareness and stimulate demand for broadband technology at a local level.

Commenting on the announcement, Pierre Danon, chief executive of BT Retail, said: "Our industry, along with government at all levels, has a huge role to play to accelerate broadband availability, demand and take-up. The Broadband Aggregation Project is a real breakthrough and will allow the public sector to keep pace with technological change and implement the systems and processes to keep it working efficiently, economically and effectively. We are excited about working in this way with the public sector and believe it will boost BT's commitment to connecting 100 per cent of UK communities to broadband by 2005."

The new contract does not replace existing means of buying BT services, and public bodies can still purchase BT services via their current contracts. More information on BT's public sector broadband services will be available on March 17, via a webcast featuring BT and representatives of Regional Development Agencies, the Regional Aggregation Board and the DTI.
