NSW begins Gig State tender process

By

The NSW Government has begun the tender process for its Gig State project aimed at improving internet capacity in regional areas.

The $100 million Gig State project – part of the $400 million Regional Digital Connectivity program announced last year – has kicked off with a call for expressions of interest in improving the price, quality of service and choice in Wagga Wagga, Parkes, Dubbo, and a corridor west to Cobar, and delivering fibre connections to Sutton, Bywong and Wamboin.

The project will be extended to other parts of NSW to ensure "regional communities have access to the same level of service and opportunities enjoyed in metropolitan centres," according to the government.

Another goal is to make regional NSW more resilient.

The expressions of interest phase will be followed by a request for tender later this year.

Full details for tenderers are here. The EOI will close at 9.30am on 2 June 2020.
