Mobile UK welcomes inclusion of Digital in DCMS departmental title

Mobile connectivity is critical to the UK’s economy and forms part of the nation’s critical infrastructure. Renaming the Department for Culture, Media and Sport to include Digital in its title is welcome recognition of the importance of the digital and mobile sectors.

Going forward it is important that the Department continues to champion the sector and seeks to ensure that the regulatory and policy environment is designed to enable effective competition and infrastructure deployment. In addition, the Department must also take a leading role to ensure that it is joined up with other departments across Government which impact upon the digital and mobile sectors.
