Gigabit Bristol is looking to implement high speed broadband, centred around a large, centrally-located area comprising Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone, Harbourside and the University. This 400-hectare area includes 5,000 businesses, 5,000 university students, 5,000 social housing tenants and 7 million people passing through every year. The aim is to ensure that that gigabit connectivity is readily available to businesses and that ultrafast broadband is available to consumers, with wireless connectivity widely available acrossall of the City’s public spaces.

To support and inform our delivery of the project we are looking to register the appetite of consumers and businesses in the City, and to consult communications providers about their imminent plans for roll-out of new services.
