2. Fixed Broadband Renewal Date- please provide day, month and year (month and year are also acceptable). If this is a rolling contract please provide me with the rolling date of the contract. If there is more than one supplier please split the renewal dates up into however many suppliers

3. Fixed Broadband Annual Average Spend- Annual average spend for each broadband provider. An estimate or average is acceptable. 

4. Internal Contact: please can you send me there full contact details including contact number and email and job title.

If your organisation has a managed services contract which includes all or two out of three of the services stated above please state which of these is included in the contract. It would also be for me too if there are any other service support areas that are included in these contracts. 

If there is more than one supplier for each contract please can you separate the contract dates and spend for each supplier. Also if no information can be provided for each of the key data types please explain why there is no information.
