Digital Communications Review

11 March 2015

Promoting competition and investment in converged digital communications services.

Ten years after the completion of our first strategic review, Ofcom is conducting an overarching review of the UK’s digital communications. The aim of the review is to make sure digital communications markets continue to work for consumers and businesses.

This review considers future issues relating to infrastructure and competition. Key to this will be how incentives for efficient investment and effective competition drive good outcomes. These outcomes include coverage, choice, price and quality of service for consumers, citizens and businesses. It covers both fixed and wireless networks and services, bundled propositions, and alternative services delivered over the internet (‘over-the-top’).
