DLA Piper advises on Scotland's Step Change broadband project
DLA Piper has advised on the £264m Step Change (Rest of Scotland) agreement, which is intended to deliver significant improvements in broadband services for Scotland.
Step Change is a next-generation access (NGA) broadband project procured under the DCMS Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) Framework. It is hoped to deliver the Scottish government’s interim Digital Scotland objectives, building towards a world-class broadband infrastructure by 2020.
The project involves the successful supplier, BT, rolling out NGA technologies across 27 local authority areas in Scotland.
DLA Piper provided legal support throughout the project.
