  • The public sector telecoms market is dominated by a few big players, with the top suppliers being awarded 78% of the total value of contracts awarded in 2018

A total of 587 contracts were awarded in the telecoms sector in 2018 with a total value of £1.2bn. However, over half of this value came from just five contracts. The largest telecoms contract was a £380m, seven year renewal of a PFI contract by TfL to Thales for connect radio and transmission services on the London Underground.Telecoms bar chart

Transport for London was the biggest buyer in the telecoms sector, awarding over £412m across four different contracts. With the telecoms sector dominated by several large value contracts, smaller suppliers may be best positioned to find opportunities through sub-contracting.
