We are committed to providing high speed internet in partnership with social landlords. We work closely with our partners to provide not only the infrastructure but the supporting over the top services and community building tools.
CoreSpeed use 100% private investment to build our infrastructure. We do not require any funding from you. We only need a formal wayleave agreement and hopefully a willingness to work together to make the rollout a success.
Granting wayleaves to property is a normal legal procedure and does not have any procurement, State Aid or competition issues. It is simply a formal legal agreement between the property owner and CoreSpeed Ltd.
The CoreSpeed network is entirely funded by private investment and therefore, because no public funding has been used, there are no State Aid issues for consideration.
Initially, we would prefer to target our infrastructure build into areas of high density housing such as tower blocks, sheltered accommodation, small estates etc. This will help us start to make a return on our investment more quickly, freeing up funds to further extend the build however; we rule nothing out and are keen to look at all opportunities.
CoreSpeed would enter into an agreement to use any property owned by the landlord. We would pay rent at a commercial level which again removes any legal concerns and, of course, provides an income generating opportunity for the landlord.
In approaching you as a social landlord, CoreSpeed are primarily concerned with obtaining your permission to extend our telecoms network. We believe that there is enough demand from customers for our product that fully justifies our investment.
Your organisation is under no obligation to purchase any service from CoreSpeed Ltd. We do hope however that you might find the financial benefits / cost efficiencies of getting tenants online to be so significant that you choose to procure services from us.
Should you wish to take a service from us, you might wish to do that by purchasing directly from the Government G-Cloud framework. This would remove the need for a full and potentially costly OJEU compliant procurement exercise. If not, we understand that you might want to go down the formal procurement route. If you do, don’t worry…we’ll be happy to submit a tender!
