How are you going to prevent suppliers from cherry picking the areas they want to go to?

CDS are keen to ensure cherry picking is discouraged and areas are connected as a whole to, where possible, prevent communities from being divided. Our main way of achieving that is through our evaluation strategy where we will incentivise suppliers to go to areas that experience low broadband speeds. An important consideration for us is to balance making our offer as attractive as possible to suppliers with the need for rural communities to be connected.

COVID-19 Info

Whilst measures to contain COVID-19 continue to evolve, CDS will attempt to maintain a Business As Usual approach, though there may be some unavoidable impact on our ability to respond to queries.
