Government publishes it Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review

Commenting on the publication of the Government’s Future Telecoms Market Review, Hamish MacLeod, Director at Mobile UK said:

“Mobile UK is encouraged by the focus on reducing mobile deployment costs in the Government’s Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review.  We welcome its acknowledgement for the need to work in partnership with industry and the priority now must be to make concrete and rapid progress to ensure the UK is at the forefront of the next generation of digital connectivity.

“The review builds on key requests made by mobile operators for reform, including: further planning reform; improved access to public sites; innovative local partnerships with local authorities; and the effective implementation of the reformed Electronic Communications Code to make it easier and cheaper to roll-out mobile infrastructure. We look forward to the Government working with industry to bring about these reforms quickly.”
