Advice to Government: Further options for improving mobile coverage

14 September 2018

Ofcom has today published technical advice to Government on further options to improve mobile coverage, following a request from Government earlier this year.

The advice was originally submitted to Government in June, and uses a snapshot of mobile coverage data from January 2018 . It provides technical analysis of options to improve mobile coverage, such as public subsidy, rural wholesale access (commonly known as rural roaming), infrastructure sharing and planning reform.

The Government will consider the advice and decide on any further steps it wishes to take.
