NSW Government issues tender for regional digital connectivity network build Featured


The NSW Government has announced an open Request for Tender to build network infrastructure for the communities of Wamboin, Bywong and Sutton as part of the $400 million Regional Digital Connectivity program.

Led by the Department of Regional NSW (DRNSW), the Regional Digital Connectivity program is focused on improving internet access in key regional locations, with families and residents in the Wamboin, Bywong and Sutton communities expected to be the first to benefit under this NSW Government investment.

The Government says the tender - the second part of a two-stage process that started with an Expression of Interest in 2020 - is calling on suppliers to install and operate network infrastructure to provide access to high speed and reliable internet services.

“With COVID-19 impacting the way people live and work, it is more important than ever for regional communities to have access to a fast and reliable internet, to support remote working, e-commerce, and staying in contact with friends and families,” the NSW Government said on Tuesday.

“The Department of Regional NSW looks forward to receiving innovative proposals from the private sector to make the best technologies available to residents. An industry briefing will be held to provide more information to interested companies,” the Government’s statement said.

“The tender will help provide a blueprint for how government investment can capitalise on and expand existing fibre infrastructure to deliver a faster and more reliable service to towns on a satellite internet service.”

The Regional Digital Connectivity program is part of the $4.2 billion Snowy Hydro Legacy Fund, led by the Department of Regional NSW.

Full details of the tender are now available on the NSW Government’s eTendering website, with the tender closing on Wednesday, 3 March 2021.
