“By enhancing the MoD’s communications infrastructure our work will not only realise tremendous cost savings which will be reinvested into defence, it will also make the Ministry more efficient and more effective in its mission to keep Britain safe.”

The new network will support the delivery of current and emerging MoD services both in the UK and overseas.
