We want to see good quality mobile broadband available from a choice of providers, wherever people live, work and travel. In December 2018, we proposed to provide strong incentives for the companies participating in the award of the 700 MHz and 3.6-3.8 GHz spectrum bands to invest in providing better quality services in rural areas, furthering our ambition to achieve comprehensive mobile coverage for people right across the UK.
In this document, we set out for stakeholders the criteria and methodology we propose to impose for assessing compliance with the proposed coverage obligations, including the coverage model we intend to use.
As set out in our compliance methodology consultation, we propose to use a rural classification as part of our compliance process. This classification is defined in the methodology and a data map.
