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.
Reporting on these metrics is a key part of Ofcom’s role in ensuring that UK consumers and businesses have access to decent internet services and can make use of their mobile phones wherever they need to. This update tracks communications providers’ progress in increasing the availability of communications services, and how the UK’s networks are responding to the changing needs of people and businesses.
