Salford City Council is currently seeking a digital infrastructure partner for its Digital Salford Infrastructure Project. In a tender, the council said: “It is vital that we have the right infrastructure across every area of our city to be ready to support service on 5G handsets and deliver 5G use cases and associated businesses.”
Details of the project, including its cost, timeline and what exactly the chosen partner would do, are yet to be revealed. However, interested parties are invited to complete a market engagement questionnaire by closing of Friday 19 July on the Pro Contract website.
The council may require the chosen partner to upgrade existing or create new connectivity sites with masts, as well as ducts and pipes to install extra fibre to enable 5G networks.
