ISPA comment on ‘An Update on Rural Connectivity’

Please see below a comment from ISPA Chair Andrew Glover following the publication of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ Committee’s report on ‘An Update on Rural Connectivity’:

“ISPA welcomes the Committee's report and their call for Government to release a statement outlining its strategy for achieving its 2025 nationwide full fibre ambitions. As we said in our letter to the Prime Minister, this is not a can to kick down the road, and the clock is ticking for the Government to take urgent action to ensure that this ambition is realistic.

“As the report notes, this strategy requires support from across Government to act quickly and decisively to support industry as they embark on this huge infrastructural challenge. We are also pleased to see that the Committee has adopted ISPA’s recommendations that reform of current wayleave arrangements and delivery of full-fibre connections in new builds is essential to ensure an accelerated full fibre roll out. We look forward to continuing to work with Government to make this a reality.”
