Havering London Borough is seeking expressions of interest from gigabit broadband suppliers to extend connectivity to over 4,900 council-owned flats.

The Council is encouraging the rollout of FTTP and is inviting full fibre providers to install their infrastructure in 596 council-owned blocks of flats, with a view to agreeing terms for wayleave agreements. 

Interested parties will be asked to submit detailed proposals for consideration prior to wayleave negotiations commencing.

Councillor Ray Morgon, Leader of Havering Council, said: “We are committed to making Havering a borough with first class connectivity for all, and welcome expressions of interest from fibre optic providers that will help to improve the infrastructure to our council-owned flats and benefit our residents living there.”
