Connected Nations and infrastructure reports


Reports on the UK’s communications infrastructure, focusing on coverage and performance of fixed broadband and mobile networks.

Our annual Connected Nations reports (previously called the Infrastructure Report) chart the UK’s evolving communications infrastructure, and our progress towards becoming genuinely connected nations. In addition, we publish two smaller updates a year, which focus on the key changes in coverage since our last report.

In addition to the reports, you can find summaries of their key themes, as well as supporting data.

This is the second interim update to our December 2020 annual Connected Nations report. It is based on mobile coverage and fixed broadband availability across the UK as of May 2021.
