Mobile Data Strategy
- Start: 21 November 2013
- Status: Statement published
- End: 30 January 2014
The objective of our mobile data strategy is to identify and prioritise actions which Ofcom could undertake to facilitate the continued long term growth in consumer and citizen benefits from increasing use of mobile data services. In doing so we recognise that increases in the efficiency of delivering mobile data services, particularly through technology and network improvements, will be important for minimising the impact of this growth on other services.
This document considers the challenges that rapidly growing demand for these services could raise and what this may imply for Ofcom's work over the coming years. In particular, we identify a number of spectrum bands where we think further work should be carried out to consider their potential future availability for mobile data use, whilst recognising the many other competing demands for spectrum.
