Supported a consortium of companies to develop a bid to win government funds to deploy fibre and 5G connectivity across a region in the UK


Scope of work

A consortium of companies was to place a bid for government funds allocated to deploy fibre and 5G connectivity in a large rural county in the UK. The key was to assess the gross value added (GVA) of attracting investment across many industries into the region leveraged in a full ready fibre, 4G and 5G telecom network.


We tackled the assignment by assessing the implications that enhanced telecom capabilities would have on the value chains of local businesses. The impacts were modelled primarily based on the inputs from local industry experts and supplemented by sector-specific research.

Fide Partners worked closely with the consortium, providing guidance on the narrative and further data insights to position for a winning bid.


We demonstrated a significant uplift in GVA across all industries, far in excess of the amount of investment required to unlock the value for the county, resulting in a strong relative position amongst the rival bidders.
