We are committed to ensuring that the UK has good quality, consistent connectivity where people live, work and travel. My Department is also working across Government, and with others, to ensure delivery of our manifesto commitment to secure 95% geographic coverage of the UK by 2022.

Alongside this work, Ofcom’s recent consultation outlined potential new licence obligations targeting rural coverage as part of the upcoming 700MHz spectrum auction. This would further help deliver better mobile coverage and enable more people to benefit from the digital economy.
