ISPA congratulates Prime Minister Boris Johnson on his clear and decisive victory and looks forward to the greater political certainty this will mean for our members.

Broadband was an important policy issue during the election campaign as radical plans for nationalisation and free broadband were pitched against an ambitious plan to deliver nationwide gigabit-capable broadband by 2025, with £5bn of public funding to help do so. Throughout the election, ISPA made the case that the vast majority of broadband rollout is delivered and funded by the industry, with billions of commercial funds currently being invested in gigabit-capable broadband networks to improve speeds

ISPA calls on the Government to now grasp the opportunity to combine proposed government funding, and the significant commercial investment, with urgent regulatory reform to the sector to ensure the UK gets maximum benefit from these investments.
