WAN & Wi-Fi Service: Digital Infrastructure Step-Change

The SCC BT Unicorn services contract, which provides critical Wide Area Network (WAN) and Wi-Fi services to Council sites, expires in August 2024. Cabinet approved the use of the South East Grid (SEG) Network Services Framework as the route to market for the procurement of the replacement WAN and Wi-Fi services, and approved capital investment to provide gigabit capable connectivity to all Council sites.


Following a technical and commercial review of the proposal, IT & Digital would like to award the contract to MLL Telecom Limited though the South East Grid (SEG) Network Services Framework.
