Economic Geography 2018
Since 2013, 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. The aim of which is to highlight whether the variation in 3G and 4G coverage between different parts of the UK can be explained by differences in the likely demand for, and cost of providing, mobile services.
This report sets out to update that analysis using 3G and 4G coverage data for 2018.
