Freedom of information request response - 05358

FOI request

FOI ID number
Full Fibre
  • Number of Applicants to build Full Fibre networks in your area: For the avoidance of doubt I am interested in the number of applicants (rather than the total applications) in your area (either received or prospective). Eg if BT Openreach applies for say 5 projects, and (say) “CityFibre” 2 projects, and “Infracapital” 1 project, then the total would be 3 (rather than 8).
  • Local Authority resources dedicated to full fibre: No priority / One part time officer / Dedicated Officer / Dedicated team
  • Out of 10 (1 lowest / 10 highest) how would you rank Full Fibre as a priority
  • How would you best describe the Authority's geography/population density? City / Urban / Rural
  • Would you give approval for a road to be dug up if another operator had already dug  up that road?
  • Does Virgin Media operate in the area?
