Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 14 September 2016

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-02163 by Fergus Ewing on 8 September 2016, on what dates BT is required to submit its quarterly contractual reports.

Answered by: Fergus Ewing 28 September 2016

The Scottish Government receive quarterly reports from BT providing detailed information on number of premises connected to fibre, structures built, marketing activity and broadband speed of properties connected to the fibre.

The due dates for these reports are dependent on the verification process for each and are not all received at the same time. Each report’s agreed delivery date is based on a fixed number of working days turnaround, calculated from the end of each quarter. The contractual reports for each quarter are received during the following quarter.
