BSG calls for evidence from industry to revise fibre cost modelbsg
BSG is calling for evidence and data from the industry that would assist it in revising the fibre cost model, published in September 2008 as an input to the Caio Review.
BSG wishes to test whether the underlying assumptions and conclusions regarding costs set out in the report are still valid, or whether they should be revised in light of industry developments. This will inform its response to the government’s Next Generation Fund consultation.
We are particularly interested to get cost data from actual deployments by local and community projects and other new entrants that may have utilised new methods of deployment, in order to understand how the costs of deploying fibre may have changed since the report was first published.
With the evidence we receive we will re-run the model, in order to understand the impact that any new evidence could have on the costs of fibre deployment across the UK. The deadline for evidence is close of play Wednesday 17 March.
