The determinants of coverage


These documents set out a high-level analysis of the availability of communications services in the UK, and in UK cities.

In May 2013, Ofcom published a report on the Availability of Communications Services Across the UK,1 which focused on the differences between urban and rural areas, particularly in the nations.

The 2014 report showed that there were still significant gaps in the availability of standard and superfast broadband services in sample UK cities, and proposed a range of possible explanations for this.

The 2015 report updates that analysis using 3G coverage data for 2015, and also extend it to consider 4G coverage.

Since 2015, alongside the Connected Nations report, we have published a research paper entitled “Economic Geography: An analysis of the determinants of 3G and 4G coverage in the UK”. This includes an econometric analysis of factors that affect the level of 3G and 4G mobile coverage available to consumers in different areas (previous editions can be found below).

This year we have produced analysis of the factors that affect the level of broadband and mobile (3G and 4G) coverage available to consumers.
