Ofcom welcomes mobile firms’ agreement to build a ‘shared rural network’
Ofcom recently (25 October 2019) welcomed mobile firms’ agreement to build a ‘shared rural network’.
An Ofcom spokesperson recently said:
“We warmly welcome these commitments, which follow detailed discussions between Government, Ofcom and the mobile operators. These improvements will make a real difference to mobile customers across the UK, and we’ll ensure they’re legally binding by writing them into operators’ licences. We will also monitor and report on companies’ progress in achieving better coverage.
“Separately, we will shortly set out revised plans to release more airwaves for mobile services next year. In light of today’s agreement, we are no longer proposing to include coverage requirements in our auction process. We will now press ahead, with industry, on the urgent task of getting better mobile services to people wherever they are.”
