Super Connected Wireless Concession Award Authority

The purpose of this report is to extend the officer delegation (given by CEB on 9/10/2013) to include the award of a city-wide wireless concession contract providing public Wi-Fi access.


As this is a concession contract it will involve no spend from the Council, instead we expect to generate income from the contract.


We estimate the income for Oxford City Council and the County Council will be in the region of £200K - £400K combined in total (not each) over the potential 15 year term of the contract. The value of the opportunity to the market is not known (nor ever will be) but is estimated to be in the region of £600K - £1.8M over the potential 15 year term of the contract.
