  1. The map we create by DBC and myself based on Openreach information Open Market Review 2019 and what we know as build (by NYNET in 2015) (shown at meeting)


  1. The List of Postcodes and premises not covered by any programmes (gaps to apply for to Rural Gigabit Vouchers asap)  or taking forward by Openreachs commercial Programmes for Ultrafast 300mb plus (map in yellow) 


Rural Gigabit Voucher application aggregation suggestion (as in Spreadheet):
