    As per licence obligations MNOs will submit their initial radio plans to Ofcom. These plans will be subject to change as more work is undertaken to assess the feasibility of sites.
  • Following agreement of initial radio plans
    Each MNO will start ther Partial Not Spot (PNS) roll-out. This refers to areas where one or more but not all mobile operators currently provide 4G coverage.
  • Following State Aid approval
    Total Not Spots (TNS) site aquisition begins. This refers to the areas with no 4G coverage from any mobile operator and is the element of the programme that is publicly funded.
