The determinants of coverage


The level of fixed and mobile coverage varies across the UK. These reports use statistical analysis to explore the reasons for this variation in 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.
