Mobile UK welcomes OFCOM’s new Code of Best Practice for the Electronic Communications Code

Following Royal Assent in April 2017 the Digital Economy Act set out a new Electronic Communications Code which sets out new measures to make it easier for Mobile Network Operators to deploy and roll out their infrastructure networks on public and private land. As part of the new Code, OFCOM has published a new Code of Best Practice to accompany the changes.

Mobile UK welcomes the new Code of Best Practice. The ECC is an important foundation for the effective roll-out of mobile networks recognising that they are national in nature and vital to the UK economy. In addition, the code makes it easier and more cost-effective to identify sites and install infrastructure and with the new measures in place will add certainty to delivery and make harder to reach areas more viable.

The new code can be found by clicking here.
