Today sees the results of my second big initiative when I became Leader.
It was clear to me that not having broadband fit for purpose just a few miles out of Cambridge is a complete nonsense. We took a decision at one of my early Cabinets to proceed as quickly as possible with getting broadband into Cambridgeshire.
We chose to work outside of the government BDUK framework contract as it looked as if it would slow us down, and we were right. We have been able to run a robust competition right to the end.
Today is the day that we award the contract at a special Cabinet. A great day.
