The planning for the Mobile Infrastructure Project was based on data originally provided by the mobile network operators and compiled by Ofcom in 2010. The operators have since made changes to their networks, going through a process of consolidating and sharing sites, and this has had an impact on the locations of not spots. Ofcom updated the not spot data for 2014 with information from the mobile network operators.
