    Sounds like they did the same as Somerset did down here when they formed SouthWestOne with IBM.

    CLEO is the RBC for that area, and they buy services from LUNS, with Lancashire being just one of the stakeholders. I doubt they'll go around changing things with internet connectivity too quickly... Also take into account that Lancashire is quite a rural area, so installing things up there is quite expensive.

    To be honest, it has already happened in other areas ... and in Northants we have done it too ... except not with a private company, but another LA (Cambridgeshire). Local Govt Shared Services is something that is popular with central Govt so except to see more of this.

    CLEO will become part of the strategic partnership and will be run by the 'new company' consisting of staff from County Hall and BT when the contract with LUNS ends in Feburary.

    And as such they can chose to be part of the strategic partnership.

    You stated it as if it was fact and finalised. Hence my comment...

    'Can chose' doesn't mean they haven't chosen.

    Most of the high schools have 100 mb Fiber connections already. They had to move a few cows out of the way when they were laying the cable though, but it's all in the name of progress.

    Indeed, the school connections are already in place. However, in the 'new world', the idea will be that to save money, BT will use what is currently the CLEO network to connect a whole lot more than just schools.

    This appears to just be a change of contractor at the back end for CLEO, was LUNS now going to be BT. Should see no difference or maybe an improvement?
