Public sector bodies can save up to two-thirds of the cost of broadband by arranging contracts through the Department of Trade & Industry's broadband aggregation programme, rather than going directly to suppliers, according to Sue Baxter, the programme's director.

She told the network e-champions annual conference that the best terms offered to a public sector body in Hampshire were one-third of the price being charged by BT.

Baxter also revealed that 86 public sector tenders for broadband are currently going through the aggregation programme's selection process. These deals, which are believed to be worth £365m, are in addition to eight deals that have already been concluded worth a total of £9m.
