We've responded to the Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review set out by the Government.

Felicity Burch, CBI Innovation and Digital Director, said:

“Businesses will welcome government’s strategy and their renewed ambition to build world-class 5G and full fibre networks. If UK business is to harness the digital revolution then uninterrupted digital infrastructure is a must-have. 

“The intention to streamline regulatory processes for building new networks quickly, including planning reform and supporting rural connectivity is welcome. This will make it easier, quicker and cheaper to roll out network upgrades.”
