2027 - Wireless Concession Contract Award

The Council has been involved in a joint London Boroughs procurement process to award concessions for the provision of an outdoor wireless (WiFi) network within the Borough as well as exclusive permission to use the Council’s street furniture, such as lamp columns, for the installation of ‘small cell’ equipment in support of 4G telecommunications.


The conclusion of a competitive dialogue process has resulted in the selection of Arqiva as the Council’s preferred bidder as it is the most economically advantageous tender.  This report provides authorisation to Award and Accept a Wireless Concession Contract with Arqiva.
